Let’s do this again! Cole Murray Cape Kidnappers Trail Run 2022

The Cole Murray Cape Kidnappers Trail Run will be happening again in 2022. We will be kicking off on 12 November with a 5km, 15km, 21km and 32km course. All competitors can choose whether to walk, run or mix it up with a bit of both.

The course is set on private land and includes trails by windswept beaches, native forest, waterfalls, river gorges and stunning coastal farmland. If you haven’t been to Te Kauwae-a-Maui/Cape Kidnappers before, this is your chance! The views are incredible!

The 2021 event ended up getting postponed (as many other events have due to Covid) and then having a few changes made so that it could still go ahead under the red light setting. We are hoping that the 2022 event will look more like what it has done, in the past.

The last couple of years have been somewhat, interruptive. Our overall wellbeing has been pushed to its limits. Three important pillars of good wellbeing are ‘physical’, ‘community’, and ‘social’. The Cole Murray Cape Kidnapper Trail Run definitely encompasses these pillars.



Getting out there and getting active.


With the proceeds of the event going to local worthwhile charities, including, the Lowe Corporation Hawke’s Bay Rescue Helicopter and the Cape Sanctuary, you are giving back to your community.


Spending time with friends or work colleagues (outside of the office) and meeting new people.

Cole Murray Director Mike Murray says the company is proud to put its name to a local event that champions wellbeing.

So do yourself a favour and give your wellbeing a boost. Get a group together, sign up, start training and we will see you at the finish line.
