Christchurch Motorway Half Marathon

Southern Motorway

Course Map

Half Marathon - 21km

The Half Marathon route starts on the Polo fields at Nga Puna Wai. You will spread out around the lap and a half of the Polo Field to the Motorway Pathways via the Underpass.

 Once through the Underpass you will turn left towards on the pathways, hopefully the Southern Motorway will be completed in February and the run will be an out and back run.  If this is not completed by then, the route will be the same as the above map.  Once we have confirmation that the motorway is completed a new map will be put up.  

 Once you return you'll have a lap of the Polo Fields to finish the run. 


The 10km runners will start at the same time as the Half Marathon runners and will run out through the underpass and continue toward Carrs Basin and turn at the 5km marker and return on the same route you ran out on. 

If all walkers and runners can keep left this would be greatly appreciated as this will allow all competitors ample room throughout the event on the pathways. We do have some runners from Achilles running with added runners, please give these runners space. 

The pathway has been advertised that it is closed for the event, although some people still chose to ignore these notices so please treat the pathway as open, meaning some cyclist may be on the pathway.  

 KIDZ Dash

This will start after the Half Marathon and 10km runners.  The KIDZ Dash will be 2km going out to the 1km marker and returning to the Finish Line.
