Starting in 1981 and quickly becoming the South Island’s premier running event, the Frontrunner HOKA Christchurch Marathon last year celebrated 40 years and is back in 2022.
Based at Christchurch's iconic Town Hall, the flat, fast and spectator friendly course takes you on a scenic tour of quintessentially Christchurch landmarks such as Hagley Park and the Avon River. Distances range from the full 42km Marathon through to the 21km, 10km and kids 1km, 2km and 3km options.
Recognised as NZ's fastest course, Christchurch is the place for PB's. The Full and Half Marathon are certified to IAAF & AIMS standards, so it's the perfect place to qualify for international events such as Boston.
Since the earthquakes of 2010/2011 they have been striving to return to their traditional course. They have finally done that and the route now is the fastest, simplest and most scenic since 2010.
NEW DATE STILL TBA.
The Tamaki River is a new addition to the Run21 Series and just the event to focus on heading into spring with a 10km and 5km course option.
