A shuttle service is available from the Mount Surf Club (Cnr Adams Ave & Marine Pde) to the start of the 12km City to Surf event at the Tauranga Yacht & Power Boat club.

PLEASE PRINT YOUR CONFIRMATION EMAIL OFF AND BRING ALONG TO CATCH THE SHUTTLE. If you do not have an email address, your ticket will be posted to you.
Walkers will start at 11.05am. 5 minutes after the runners – this is to avoid congestion on the course. We value our walkers and wish to ensure that the experience is a positive one for all entered. To ensure this we rely on entrants’ integrity that walkers WALK the complete event. Please participate in the spirit of the event and abide by walking criteria. Any walking competitor seen running will be automatically classified in the running results and no correspondence will be entered into. If competitors are unsure whether they may run & walk different sections of the course, it is requested that you enter the “Run” division.
Prams/Buggies/Strollers are not permitted at this event due to causing congestion on the course.
