The ATAWHAI Charitable Trust will be running the Gisborne Marathon in 2017, the first marathon to see the sunrise. We’ll use this as a platform to promote our strong cultural base within our region having some of the best kapa haka teams in New Zealand. We have some of the most scenic beaches in New Zealand, one of a kind natural resources in our back yard with the Rere rock falls. Our strong wine making industry adds to the vista of our region and will promote the newly developed Oneroa walkway.
The course will traverse through all our Iconic places:
- Okitu Beach
- Oneroa Walkway
- Cook’s monument
