Start on Marine Parade outside Race HQ and head towards the river. Make a left turn onto Hikoikoi footpath until you reach Waione Street. Turn right on to the footpath and just before the bridge go down the ramp leading to the subway under the Waione Street pipe bridge.

Cross Bracken Street and then follow the path around the edge of Sladden Park.
Go under the Ava Rail Bridge and follow the gravel path straight ahead. Pass under the Ewen Bridge and a little way past the bridge turn around to take the asphalt ramp back up onto Ewen Bridge on the north side. Cross Ewen Bridge turning on to the stopbank heading north. Stay on top of the stopbank until Melling Bridge/Harvey Norman (take care crossing two car park entrance roads). Turn left down the path just before Melling Bridge (where there is a drink stop) and then turn right under Melling Bridge. Follow the river trail (passing under Kennedy Good Bridge). Turn at the half marathon turnaround and follow the river trail back under the Ewen and Ava Rail bridges and back to the Waione Street bridge. Go under the Waione Street bridge on the boardwalk and then turn hard left to cross the Waione Street bridge heading back towards Petone. Follow the footpath and then turn left on to the gravel path (same place you turned on to Waione Street) and follow around the outside of McEwan Park and then on to the park to the finish.
