Raise funds and be the first across the finish line to earn points to take the trophy from defending champions Wairau Pak'nSave.


How it all began...

A bunch of Kiwi lads - Jon Auckland, Paul Dunphy and their (self-named) 'motley crew' of mates decided they needed to do 'something big' they could claim as their own.

So, the motley crew's annual 'sausage run' was born. A 33km mission from Whangaparaoa to Devonport, run at high-tide, with sauages and beer on their backs so they could celebrate at the finish line with an old-fashioned Kiwi barbie.

More than ten years and thousands of kilometres later, there's still a barbie at the end of the Coastal Challenge run by Harbour Hospice North Shore. Participants and their supporters can enjoy the Kiwi tradition of a sausage with bread for a donation to help Hospice patience and their families living on the North Shore.

Thank you Cargo Plus and Total Sport for proudly partnering with Harbour Hospice.
