Enter as Mixed, Mens, or Womens teams

Town v Country

Just to add an extra bit of competitive bite - when you register for The 4 Legged you will need to enter as either a Town or Country team.

Exact cource distances to be confirmed (as Mother Nature may play havoc), but it will look something like this:


10km, from the sea up the river

The action starts at 8am with your Kayaker leaving from Lismore, the home of Clevedon Coast Oysters. The tide will be your friend with a paddle out of Lismore and passed the oyster beds and into the mouth of the Wairoa River. From here you will paddle up the river passed your exit point and turn around at a marker at the Clevedon Cruising Club before returning to Smith’s farm for an elegant exit in front of the crowd to pass on to your running mate.

10km, all of road stunning bush tracks.

Your runner will leave Smith’s farm crossing the road directly onto Woodlands Stud from here you will climb up and over to the back of the farm to enjoy most of your run in the bush. There will be a couple of steam crossings to leap over along the way to cool off. Finishing at The 4 Legged Base Camp you will pass over to your Mountain Biker.


16km, but can be technical so you need to know your bike.

The course here is varied from full mountain bike tracks to gravel farm raceways. Some serious track damage (left from the March Storm) on the pine forest mountain bike tracks may mean that you have to dismount in a couple of places. A stunning ride that ends with you dismounting and running a very short distance to your horse rider to exchange bibs back at The 4 Legged Base Camp.

Helmets compulsory for Mountain Bike and Horse Ride.

5km, all gates open with bush and open paddock options.

Galloping glory goes to the horses this year with the last leg being a short and varied track around Woodlands Stud. There will be a short bush section with stream crossings. No problems if you horse doesn’t like the bush there is an alternative track around this area (for fairness a time penalty will apply if no attempt is made). Your gallop across the finish line will determine the winners from each of the three sections – Women’s, Men’s and Mixed.

Helmets compulsory for Mountain Bike and Horse Ride.
