Add a comment

Three runners have been rescued after they became trapped on a steep ridge at Whakatane Heads.

The Trustpower Tect Rescue Helicopter was dispatched to Kohi Pt today where the runners had taken to the ridge line after the incoming tide forced them off the lower rock track.

They had been running from Ohope Beach to Whakatane.

They were winched to safety. No one was injured.
