Toothcrush 5km

Enter The 2019 Event Now


A fantastic, achievable course that hugs the Tauranga coastline and includes Beach Road.
You’ve got two fun downhill sections and one short sneaky uphill in the first 3km. The final 2km home is dead flat. The 2019 course has been measured to IAAF standards.

PWYW Written Race Briefing – 2019 5KM

On your Toothcrush 5km course…
Outside of the awesome scenery on course, entrants will pass our course entertainment, a bunch of supportive event marshals and a support station on Levers Road (2.3km in). The support station is manned by a passionate local community group and will be stacked with R-Line & water, plus will have first aid and toilets available. Important intersections on your event course have been marked with GREEN arrows and distance markers will be placed at every km of the event course with GREEN km markers. Oh and be sure to look out for (our official event photographers) as they operate a PWYW model for event photos too – PWYW sounds familiar right?

Start Times.
– 9.30am (for all walkers and runners)

– PWYW pricing for the Toothcrush 5km event is on until April the 3rd, 2019. We’d love you to pay the entry fee you’d expect to pay for a professional event like this one, but ultimately you, the participant, decides. If you might not have entered yourself (and the kids?) because it adds up to more than you’d like…well welcome to PWYW baby!

– 10 days out from the event PWYW pricing will take a backseat. From April 4th, 2019 until event day, all Toothcrush 5km entries received will be charged our typical Standard Entry Fees ($30.00). We like to call this our “deterrent” pricing strategy. For PWYW to work, we need to have an accurate prediction of final entry numbers. This way, we hope fewer people will “wait and see”, and more people will enter early so the PWYW dream can live on. *fistbump*.
