The former organisers of the popular Ōrewa Half Marathon, Running Events, are returning to Ōrewa after a four-year absence.
However, it’s not a half marathon this time – instead, they are offering 15km, 10km, 5km and 2km options on a course that is mainly on Te Ara Tahuna/Ōrewa Estuary walk and cycleway, starting on Western Reserve.
Run Ōrewa is the latest addition to the company’s North Shore Run series, and is the first up, scheduled to take place on Sunday, January 16. The other events in the series are Run the Point, Run Devonport and Run Albany.
Event organiser Jason Herriman says the team is excited to be back in Ōrewa.
The last Ōrewa Half was held in 2018 – Running Events cancelled it the following year (HM March 1, 2019). They replaced it with an event in Maraetai, which is still running.
