Fullers Wharf2Wharf

Waiheke Island • 17 March 2018

Fullers Wharf2Wharf celebrates its 27th year of running, walking  and sweating on 17 March 2018.

There’s something for everyone - the 25K Orapiu to Matiatia race, a 12km race from Onetangi to Matiatia and a 5k race from Surfdale to Matiatia.  For the littlies, there’s also a kids dash at the finish area at Matiatia.

Early bird event ticket prices are available until 30 November (midnight) and standard prices apply from 1 December onwards. 

Race tickets don't include your ferry transport, but we have two ferry options available. Our special Wharf2Wharf fares are just $34 for adults and $18 for children.

Things to know:

  • If you’re doing the 25km race, you need to catch the 7:30am special sailing to Orapiu which departs from Auckland. You’ll also receive a return ticket for any of our regular scheduled ferries which leave from Matiatia. Please select Special Charter sailing in ticket options. 
  • Your discounted Wharf2Wharf ticket means you catch any of our regular ferries to Waiheke if you travel from 16-19 March 2018. There are free buses to connect you to your race start points, please see www.wharf2wharf.co.nz for more information.
  • If you're travelling on the day, the last ferry ex Auckland would be the 8.30am ferry to make it for the start of the 12km and the 9.30am ferry ex Auckland for the start of the 5km. 
  • If you’re going to be catching the Special Charter sailing from Matiatia to the 25km race start at Orapiu, you can buy tickets on the wharf on the day for $10.  The ferry then continues onto Orapiu for the 25km race start at 9:10am.  Bag drop can be done here as the ferry will return to Matiatia for bag drop off.
