The event is based in Rahui Te Kiri Reserve in southern (or “new”) Omaha, surrounded by multi-million dollar beach pads and billion dollar views. All events start on Omaha’s pristine and peaceful suburban roads and finish with a winding run through the reserve with cheering spectators hanging over the fences Tour de France style!
The half marathon course is acclaimed as one of the most beautiful – and fast – you will find anywhere. It features a full circumnavigation of the Omaha Peninsula, including 2km on the hard packed white sands of Omaha beach. Added to this is an out-and-back over the causeway and around the coastal reserve at historic Point Wells. Throughout, you are treated to wide sea views and the water is never more than a stone’s throw away. Both the 5k and 10k runs follow the route around the peninsula, with the 5k turning around near the surf club whilst the 10k continues right up to the bird sanctuary at the northern tip.
Driving to the event on race morning is easy, but why not make a weekend of it? Omaha is replete with holiday home rentals suitable for all budgets, from Russian oligarch down to those of more modest means. Take on the challenge of the Omaha Half Marathon, then settle onto the deck of your rental for a BBQ and a well-earned glass of wine!
The perfect escape from the pre-Christmas madness, a fun and fitness filled day or weekend awaits at Omaha this year.Visit website
