Kaikoura’s location and great weather lends itself to events orientated around the outdoors, fun and the wonderful landscape. We have a number of signature events like the 48Hour photography event in August, the Kaikoura Whale Run (half marathon walk/run) and the Kaikoura Hop (cars, cruising, carshow) event in September. Put Kaikoura on your event schedule for spring and summer and create great memories.
Now into it’s 13th year, the Kaikōura Whale Run began life in the school grounds of Kaikōura Suburban School as the Kaikōura Suburban Half Marathon. The idea was to create a fun event fund raiser that could encourage folk to have a get fit project over winter to feel great for the summer.
Please check out their website to Enter for the race or for more info about the event.
