Play in the Bay. Stay in the Bay.
Hammer Nutrition Hawke’s Bay Trail Run Series
The winter months are when most of the world hibernates. But not here in Hawke’s Bay. In Hawke’s Bay, winter is when we come out to play in the winter sun – just like the summer sun only a little cooler. The Hawke’s Bay Trail Run Series gives you the chance to see parts of Hawke’s Bay you may not ordinarily get to see while at the same time experiencing the joys and pleasures of running off road.
Hawke’s Bay: Closer than you think
Just 90 minutes from Taupo gets you to some of the best weather in the country; all year round. We have some of the best off road running locations in the country. We definitely have some of the best food and wine in the country. We have everything here for you to make a family weekend out. Don’t just come for the day. Make a weekend of it. It’s all here. It’s all in one place. It’s closer than you think.
Five runs in four different locations, all courses always different from the previous year. Something for everyone from the seasoned off road runner to the very beginner. Put these dates for 2015 in your diaries now. Location to be confirmed.

Three different distances to choose from at each event:
- Short distance of 5 – 9 km for walkers and runners
- Medium distance of 11 – 15 km for walkers and runners
- Half marathon for runners only
And a team relay option with laps of 2 – 4 km that requires only a little bit of fitness but presents a lot of fun.
Entries wil open early in 2015
You will need to read through the information on this site to find where to enter. We make no apologies for doing what we can to try to ensure the information is read before entry. The entry portal is not hidden, but the only way to find it is to read the information.
We’re capping entries this year for teams and individuals as we are running out of space to park cars and we don’t want too many people on the trails. Please make every effort to carpool whenever you can.
