Kerikeri Half Marathon (21.1km), Northland, New Zealand

This is a fantastically run and organised event. It is a great undulating course that allows for a start of 7km up hill followed by varying 14km of down hill. Sounds easier than it is to run it, and it finishes on about 400meters of grass feild.

After competing for a few years, and entering Round the Bays (Auckland 8.4km) in a gorilla suit, I started to do this event in a suit as well as continuing to complete a entire marathon, finish to start – start to finish total 41.2km.
