Race your way from Waihi to Waihi Beach
Monday, May 1, 2017
Cycle, paddle and run your way from Waihi to Waihi Beach (and back again) in The Nugget Multisport Festival this month.
The Nugget MultiSport Festival began in 2010, and the event has grown every year since. It brings you all that's great about being outdoors and active, and rolls it into an event that anyone can be part of.
Held on Saturday, May 13, there's the Full Nugget Multisport Race, Half Nugget Duathlon, 21km Trail Run and the 10km or 5km off-road Run/Walk events, so there's something for everyone and every fitness level.
You'll take an unforgettable adventure from Waihi's charming town centre out to the spectacular harbour and coast at Waihi Beach, before returning to Waihi via breathtaking trails to the rim of the mighty Martha gold mine and our iconic finish line under the shadow of the Cornish Pumphouse.
Along the way you'll ride through quiet country roads, paddle the beautiful harbour and run along remote rocky coastlines and clifftops to hidden beaches. After 'the hill' you'll mountain bike through rolling farmland and stunning singletrack before your final run inside the mighty Martha Mine open pit.
A great way to explore Waihi Beach, one of our Virtually on Track Gem Sites!
