  • Enter with assurance that your entry fee is fully refundable if the event is cancelled*. Event cancellation protection is included in all entry options – no extra charge to you. *As with all insurance cover there is fine print (full disclosure…chemical warfare, cyber attacks, radioactive contamination and a few other curly situations are not covered) but we’ve done our very best to give you protection, especially if the next Cyclone Gabby rolls into town.

Pay An Entry Forward

Our unique Pay an Entry Forward programme is proudly supported by Coromandel’s More FM – extending the programme’s reach into the Hauraki and Coromandel regions. When you enter the Whangamatā Half Marathon, 10km or 5km you can choose to pay an entry forward to gift an entry for a local who otherwise wouldn’t be able to enter. One entry fee might be manageable but it can be a stretch to cover the whole family. Add an entry to yours, and share this event with others. Simply select the event option you would like to gift in the merchandise section of the online entry system and you’ll make someone’s day…maybe even change their life. Gifts of multiple entries can be invoiced – please connect with us here if you’d like to gift multiple entries.
