The Whale Run story
Now into it's 13th year, the Kaikōura Whale Run began life in the school grounds of Kaikōura Suburban School as the Kaikōura Suburban Half Marathon. The idea was to create a fun event fund raiser that could encourage folk to have a get fit project over winter to feel great for the summer. It has proven to be very popular and thanks to the support and sponsorship of local businesses and you; the competitors, we bring you the bigger and even better Kaikōura Whale Run.

1/2 Marathon Walk or Run
This is our biggie for the serious runners, walkers and self-challenge doers.
Course heads off down to the Kowhai River bank through nice bird-filled bush, back along Postmans Road, a wee climb towards the end with the treat of great views across the Kaikōura Peninsula.

10 km Walk or Run
We follow the same track as the 1/2 Marathon for a start on this course. Not quite so much Kowhai River bank and a nice return loop along the flats.
Great for folk who don’t do hills…..
But don’t be fooled, it’s still a challenge!

2 km MaraFun
This race is exclusively for primary school age children (9 years and under). Parents would never keep up anyhow! A sprint down Schoolhouse Road to the Suburban Hall and return.
Keep your eyes open if you want to catch this race, it’s quick.
