Kerikeri Half

Run/Walk Series Kerikeri


The Conbrio 5k is part of the Northland Waste Kerikeri Half Marathon which is held on the 21 November 2020.

The new course for the Kerikeri 5k will see participants heading off-road this year and experiencing some of Kerikeri's spectacular trails and scenery including the Wairoa Stream Waterfall which has selfie written all over it. A Run/Walk event targeted at people who aren't quite up to the half marathon distance but still want to be involved in the big day. 

The course requires little to some level of fitness, but we advise you to check out the photos below to get an idea on the terrain that you will be navigating. 

Upon finishing, sit back, relax and take in the atmosphere of the Kerikeri Domain enjoying the food, live band and most importantly the prize giving.

Race number

Your race number has your timing tag attached on the back. All you need to do on race day to have your time recorded is wear your race number on your front without anything covering it. At the end of the event, you can keep it as a souvenir or discard it. The timing tag is disposable, you do not need to return it to us. Take care of your race number! If you lose it before the event, a replacement number will cost $10. We can no longer absorb the increasing postage cost for race numbers therefore instead of increasing entry fees across the board we have decided to give you the option to pay a little extra to cover postage or to collect. Entrants who opted to not pay for postage will need to collect their race number from;

Refunds & Distance Trasfers?

Covid Cancellation

In the unfortunate event we have to cancel the Conbrio 5k event there will be no refunds. You will automatically be enrolled into the 2021 Conbrio 5k.


- 75% refund - individuals withdrawing from the 2nd of September through to the 21st of September 2020

- 50% refund - individuals withdrawing from the 22nd of September through to the 12th of October 2020

- 25% refund - individuals withdrawing from the 13th of October through to the 1st of November 2020

No Refunds from the 2nd of November 2020

Why can’t I get all my money back?

  • About 60-70% of costs are incurred (and spent!) well before race week begins. There are staff costs (wages), purchasing capital items (like a start gantry), marketing, accommodation, clothing, medals, timing.... the list goes on.

  • The big 'hidden' (because you will never see them) costs are associated with health and safety compliance, operational planning, people planning, landowner access etc. These can (and do) add up to hundreds of hours of work.

  • We are runners/walkers just like yourself who also enter events and understand from a participant point of view the frustrations of asking for a refund therefor we have done a bit of research and we believe we offer one of the fairest refund policies around.

  • For more information on our refunds policy please follow this link here

Transferring to another distance within the same event

Please email with a brief explanation of your distance transfer request.

  • You cannot transfer to a sold-out event distance.

  • If you decide to upgrade your distance and space is available, you will need to pay the difference of the current entry fees.

  • If you decide to downgrade your event distance and space is available, we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

Race Number

  • When transferring between distances you will be allocated a new race number. Race numbers are generally coloured differently to allow us to easily identify which distance you are participating in.

  • If race numbers have been ordered before your request to upgrade or downgrade (your distance) is made, then you will be charged $5 for a new one.

  • If race numbers have not been ordered, then your new race number will be free.

  • Generally, race numbers are ordered 24 day prior to the event.


  • Parking is at the Turner Centre as this is where the bus pickup point is.
  • We advise getting here a tad early to avoid possible traffic delays due to the Half Marathon finishers coming through at this time.
  • To avoid delays, we advise taking this route.
  • There is limited parking at the Kerikeri Sports Complex but you will need to find your own way back
