Wallace Shield participants head off along the beach at Rabbit / Moturoa Island

Wallace Shield Race 3

Join us this Saturday, 6 May at Moturoa/Rabbit Island for the third and final race in our three-event series of 5km cross country for runners and 3.4km for walkers. Juniors can choose 1 lap (1.7km), 2 laps (3.4km) or 3 laps (5km).

Race 3 is a handicap race based on times from the previous two races. The winner is the first across the line. The slowest competitors start first at 2:30pm with the next competitors going at intervals until finally the fastest competitor starts and tries their best to catch up!

Meet at the seaside carpark, Old Domain, Moturoa/Rabbit Island - see map HERE.

Registration from 1:30pm. Arrive early to find out your designated start time! 

Race briefing is at 2.20pm, race starts at 2.30pm.

Waimea Harriers – the running and walking club for everyone!


For more than 50 years Waimea Harriers has been encouraging running and walking for people of all ages.

We believe running is wonderful for people's fitness and general health! Our motto is 'Run for your life!'

Waimea Harrier events cater for people of all abilities, including competitive runners and walkers, families looking for an outdoor activity they can enjoy together, and social runners and walkers of all ages.

Our members come from Atawhai to Tapawera to Takaka.

After most of our events, participants meet at a nearby pub to socialise. For new members this is a great time to get to know one another, share stories about the run or walk they've just done, and build new friendships.

We pride ourselves on the warm welcome we give to everyone. 

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
