Description

Stunning city run! North Shore coastline doesn't get much better. This particular section is excellent as you can get a 10km return run in and barely have to run on any roads. You also cross the two "gauntlet" causeways which are amazing at higher tides.

The path follows the coastline except for a small bit you have to go on the road, and need to look for the steps path down to Brown's Bay. At low tide you can return all the way along the beach and avoid the clifftop parts if desired. The rocks can be slippery and sharp though.

DOG OWNERS PLEASE NOTE: Dogs are only permitted early morning and evening - check actual times with the Council if in doubt.

Features of interest

The two "Gauntlet" causeways near the start/finish at Campbell's Bay. I love this around 2hrs before or after high tide and having to time the waves as they crash over.

  • Staying Safe

    Moderate.

    The path follows the coastline except for a small bit you have to go on the road, and need to look for the steps path down to Brown's Bay. At low tide you can return all the way along the beach and avoid the clifftop parts if desired. The rocks can be slippery and sharp though.

    Perfect throughout.

    Windproof jacket, Cellphone.

    Water available at all the beach parks along the way but it can get very hot in summer so I suggest you run with some.

    Very hot on a sunny summers day.

    If you take the beach path at low tide at either end of Rothesay Bay then the rocks can be slippery and sharp. You also shouldn't run/walk too close to the cliffs as someone has died from rockfall in the area.
