The Taihape Half Marathon




Not quite off road but certainly not your standard on road marathon, the Taihape Half Marathon is something special.  Taking runners and walkers through the stunning Moawhango Valley, the Taihape Half Marathon has been described as the most scenic half marathon in the North Island.

Combine this stunning course with plenty of great prizes (as listed below) and an uplifting atmosphere, this is a challenging event not to be missed.  

For those not wanting to tackle the 21.1km Half Marathon there is the 10km and 5km fun run/walk option. For the kids there is a fun run/walk for children 6 - 10 years. This is a fully supervised event held before the adults race.


Keep training for March 2018!
