The Buller Marathon is run in February each year. It starts at Hawks Crag, in the Buller Gorge, with the route going to the old Berlins Hotel before turning and going to Westport wiht its finish at Victoria Sq. If you are not up to the full, a half marathon option is available. It starts near the Ohika-iti River Bridge and also finishes at Victoria Square
Equipment: In February it can get quite hot in the Gorge so make sure you get plenty of water into yourself before the run (from 72 hours out you can start water loading). Pick your running top appropriate to the day but expect it to be warm.
Carters Beach Golf Course
The Westport golf club is located at Carters Beach, approx 6km from Westport. A very nice and very green course located between the sea and the Airport. The trees on the course are all old and large making the course seem smaller than it really is.
Equipment: You will need to bring your own clubs though contacting ahead may help located some equipment if needed.
