The 'big dog' of the event, the Full Nugget Multisport Race is a must-do on every multisporter's calendar. Road bike, kayak, trail run, and mountain bike your way from downtown Waihi to Waihi Beach, Homunga Bay, and back to our spectacular finish line at Waihi's iconic pumphouse.
The Nugget long course run/walk has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best off-road runs around. It starts with a bang on beautiful Waihi Beach and combines an amazing single-track in coastal native bush with lush farmland and interesting heritage features.
Take an all off-road run or walk on the cool trails around the historic township of Waihi.
The course starts under the towering poppet headframe and leads you onto the Martha Mine Pit Rim Walkway. You'll venture through old mining heritage areas and pass through exotic and native bush and along a scenic riverside trail, before heading back to finish at the Cornish Pumphouse.
Based around Waihi’s unique Pit Rim Walkway and the Union Hill heritage area, this course is ideal for those who want to be part of the Nugget and get a taste of off-road running. It's also perfect for kids and families.
