Podium Rotorua Half Marathon

Rotorua becomes New Zealand’s running mecca in late November for the ultimate half marathon run and walk. New experiences, new sights and new sounds are around every corner of this stunning half marathon course. Vehicles take second places as over 1,000 runners and walkers charge down Rotorua’s primary highway, Fenton Street and blow through one of the busiest vehicle intersections in provincial NZ. From there its golf courses, forest trails, geothermal wonders and lakeside boardwalk… this is the course that has it all. However, this isn’t just an event for those looking for big distance. The Brooks 10K Classic features one of the flattest and fastest courses you will find anywhere in New Zealand - and still manages to pack in the best of the geothermal and historic highlights of the city. If you’re looking for a 10K PB, it’s here waiting for you. And just to make sure no one in the family misses out, the 4K Community fun run and walk and 2K kids dash round off a fab day of running and walking in NZ’s premier tourist town. What are you waiting for? Get amongst it!
