Description

Start at Broad Park/ Waimairi SLC and follow the trail north through the park. Pretty soon you'll plunge into the edge of the Bottle Lake pine forest. Continue north on the Southern Pegasus Bay Track and after about 7km you'll reach Spencer Park, either cut in to run through it or keep heading north to skirt around it.

You'll exit the forest and have 3km on undulating sand dunes as you work your way up the spit. Glimpses of the Brooklands Lagoon to your left and north New Brighton beach / Peg Bay to your left. Your last 1500m will plunge you back into forest, taking you all the way to the top of the spit and the mouth of the mighty Waimakariri River.

From here, either turn round and head back the way you came or head towards the ocean and grind the 11/12km back along the beach.
