$10.00 – $15.00


This event will start from the Pepe Reserve West and the competitors will paddle around buoys in the inner estuary. This course will be approximately 2km. The Tairua Surf Life Saving club will be assisting on the day, however this is a very safe event as the water is only knee depth. The competitors will exit the water by the stairs on the Pepe Road side of the Estuary and carry their vessel up the hill to a roped off area. This is where people in teams will tag their runner. The run goes along Pepe Road, onto the Heath Reserve and across the new bridge, and around the estuary back to the start. We do ask that people are wary of the golfers as the cross the course.
