The Trail Trust were thrilled to welcome the Buller Heritage 10 km fun run to the Kawatiri Coastal Trail. Joining the Buller Gorge Marathon Events for 2021, the family friendly event was held on the Pūwaha Section of the Trail, making the most of the lush farmland and beautiful wetlands.
Finishing through the chute at Victoria Square, the Event is suitable for all ages and abilities. Registrations filled up quickly, so be sure to watch this space to make sure you don’t miss out on this magical course next year.
287 people registered for the Event, with 261 completing the course. The Fun Run provided a great alternative for those who originally registered for the half or full marathon, but suffered an injury, and might otherwise have not taken part.
The shorter distance also makes the Event more accessible for school aged participants and wheelchair users. We can’t wait for next year! Our sincere thanks to Buller Gorge Marathon Events for their generosity, as all proceeds from the Event were donated to the Trail for maintenance.
