Race starts at Orapiu Wharf (reached via the dedicated Fullers Fun Run Ferry).
There is a steep climb (500 metres) out of Orapiu and then an undulating sealed road. After 2.4 kms turn left where the sign says Onetangi and continue on past Passage Rock Vineyard. The bottom of Mt Maunganui Hill (steep climb) is at 5kms and is 2.2km to the top followed by a long downhill. At the bottom of the hill (8.3km) follow road around to the right (Awa Awa Roa Rd on left). At 8.4km turn left into Waiheke Rd where the sign points to Onetangi. Wind up this hill to the top of Waiheke Rd. Instead of following main road go straight ahead into Belle Tce – 11.3km. This will loop back onto Waiheke Road. Continue down this hill to Onetangi.
Continue on Waiheke Rd and turn left into Onetangi Rd. Go along Onetangi straight past the Golf Club. In Ostend turn left into Calais Tce (16.9 kms). After this hill turn left into Natzka Rd, go past Anzac Bay and right into Ladd Rd. At the top of the hill (18km) turn left into Ostend Rd and down to Putiki Bay. Turn right into Wharf Rd. Join up with the main Rd (Causeway Rd) by turning left and go across the Causeway. Proceed through the roundabout and through Surfdale (this main road changes names several times – Alison, Mitchell, Miami and Hamilton Rds). Leave the main road by going straight ahead where Hamilton Rd veers right and becomes Surfdale Rd (20.7km). Turn left onto Lannan Rd and this becomes The Esplanade which is a metal road. Follow the sea wall around to Blackpool (back on sealed road), turn right in Moa Ave (22.1km), left into Nikau Rd, right into Tui St, left into Mako Street. At the top of this hill turn left into Church Bay Rd (23.3 km) and then right into Nick Johnston Drive.  200 metres along the road you turn right and follow the Atawai Whenua track down to the finish line.
