Jake Robertson's fantastic purple patch
Jake Robertson has come off the back of the best period in his career. Steve Landells chats the Kiwi distance running star about his marathon debut, setting national records and competing at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
There’s just over a week until the 54th edition of the famous Rotorua Marathon. This year it doubles as the 2018 New Zealand Marathon Championships which ups the ante for both the elite field and the masters age grades.
We’ve also launched an exciting new half marathon course. Check out the new course
If you're thinking about running the full Rotorua Marathon, don’t forget the special for Athletics NZ members. If you are a member of an affiliated Athletics NZ club, you can get $15 off the entry fee.
One of the advantages of belonging to an Athletics NZ affiliated club, and automatically becoming a member of Athletics NZ, is that you and your family can access the Athletics NZ Member Benefits programme. The programme can save you money on travel, accommodation, rental cars, insurance, sports gear, sports medical products and more, just by being a member of your local athletics club. We feature some of our Member Benefits Partners below.
