Motorists travelling around the Mount on Sunday will experience road closures.
These road closures will be in place due to the Mount Runners and Walkers Half Marathon taking place.

The following roads will be closed:
Along the seaward side of The Mall
The Mauao side of Adams Avenue

This year will be the 33rd annual running of Mount Runners and Walkers Half Marathon and draws more than 1400 participants.
While the Half Marathon run/walk is the feature event, there are also 5km and 10km run/walk course options and all options circumnavigate the popular Mauao base track. An additional KidsK course option is held on the Mount Maunganui main beach for all super enthusiastic little ones.
