Marathon Course Error...

It has come to our attention that a large part of the full marathon field have cut the course short. This happened in the eastern 10k loop that only Full Marathoners used, whereby runners turned into Waratah St a block too early, cutting the course short by approx. 280m... More Here.

Back to the Future in 2019...

In 2019 the ASB Christchurch Marathon is returning to the Christchurch Town Hall for the first time since 2010. After an eight year rebuild following the earthquakes it is due to re-open on March 2019. The marathon race pack pick up (June 1st) and start/finish (June 2nd) will all be based there thanks to the support of Vbase, who manage many of Christchurch's premier event venues, including the Christchurch Town Hall.


... To the 39th running of the South Island's favourite foot race.

Inspired by the 1974 Commonwealth Games marathon, the Christchurch Marathon event is renowned as one of the fastest courses in the world.

But it is also one of the most scenic and supportive, welcoming all age & ability for a flat, fast and scenic tour around iconic Christchurch landmarks such as the Christchurch Town Hall, Hagley Pk, the Avon River & the Red Zone.

With a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k & Kids' Mara'Fun, there is something for everyone.

But don't take our word for it...
