Based at Christchurch's iconic Cathedral Square, our flat, fast and spectator friendly course takes you on a scenic tour of quintessentially Christchurch landmarks such as Hagley Park and the Avon River.
The proposed 2017 route is based on the successful 2016 route. We anticipate minor alterations before finalising the course to further reduce the temporary impact on traffic flows and the transport network, and to enhance the runner experience. Minor route changes may also be required to accommodate the rebuilding of Christchurch.
ATTN - Participants do need to be aware that parts of the course run through the Red Zone where road surfaces are not first rate. We will make improvements where dangerous, but some parts will be on gravel sections that have been left unsealed since the earthquakes.
