A stunning Coast to Coast run, bike and kayak adventure across New Zealand’s legendary Abel Tasman and Marlborough Sounds National Parks, finishing amongst the famous vineyards of the Marlborough winelands.


HAVE YOU GOT THE BOTTLE?


Cutting a line from west to east along the very top of New Zealand’s South Island, our route is a tribute to all that is iconic about New Zealand. The Abel Tasman National Park is raw, wild and untamed. The waters of the Marlborough Sounds are majestic, pristine and beautiful beyond words. The Corker is 100% bottled Kiwi and reflects the very best of New Zealand’s multisport heritage. You will experience a superbly varied run, bike and kayak route that encompasses mountain, forest, river and sea. When the adventure is done and dusted, sit back and sip a crisp Sauvignon Blanc grown yards from the finish line. Put simply, this one is an absolute Corker.
