The Rotorua Marathon is over for another year. The build-up, the anticipation and the excitement of the event day itself are all in the past, but what a fantastic day it was!

Whether you walked the 5.5km and enjoyed the unique experience of walking across the thermal sulphur flats, ran the full marathon chasing a personal best, acted as a course marshall or event volunteer, or were one of the wonderful local supporters, we hope the event met or exceeded your expectations.

We had gorgeous weather, some outstanding races, great memories and talking points for years to come.

A HUGE thank you to all of you who participated in our 53rd year. We look forward to welcoming you to next year’s running of the 54th Rotorua Marathon.
