Crossing through 10 private properties, this is your once a year chance to take a walk, run or ride down The Wild Side of the Otago Peninsula. With some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, this is not an opportunity to be missed.

All profit will be returned to the Otago Peninsula Community. Past beneficiaries include: The Otago Coastguard, Yellow Eyed Penguin Trust, Macandrew Bay Yacht club, Vauxhall Yacht Club, Tautuku Fishing club and Portobello Kindergarten.

A good level of fitness is required for the run and mountain bike courses. We recommend that you do some hill training. We also recommend a 'good' level of fitness for the Walk, which is a 'social' course, so you can really enjoy yourself. For safety reasons, there will be course cut off times, please check this website's Competitor Information page and your race packs for further details.

MUCH OF THE LAND IS PRIVATELY OWNED. ANYONE FOUND USING THE LAND OUTSIDE THE EVENT ARE LIKELY TO BE PROSECUTED. Please respect the generosity of the landowners.
