Red Stag Redwoods Relay

This relay is a great annual event for running and walking teams with a course that winds its way through the iconic Redwood Forest. It is an event that is looked forward to by all and well represented by running clubs coming from as far as Hawera and Auckland.

The relay is open to running and walking teams from athletic clubs, schools, corporate and social teams over a distance of 5km per team member for the adult teams, and 3.2km for the youth teams.
