Sunday 28th February 2021
The Christchurch Motorway Half Marathon is being held on Sunday 28th February 2021, starting and finishing at the athletics track at Nga Puna Wai Sports Hub.
This is an amazing course and with no vehicles, allows runners and walkers to concentrate on your running. You will be able to see vehicles racing past on the motorway as you enjoy the relaxing fast run.
Christchurch Motorway Half Marathon will cater for all runners; whether you’re a beginner or an elite runner, this fast-flat course will give you the opportunity to do one of the fastest half’s, 10km or 5km you’ve ever done.
There will be a walking section in all 3 events the 5km, 10km & Half Marathon. With the Kidz Dash being a 2km run on the athletics track, 5 laps. This will give the children a flavour of the experience of running in a big event and on a world class surface.
We have introduced the 5km this year after numerous requests especially with the Start/Finish on the track.
We have had a lot of inquiries about the event from the North Island and Australia. With boarders restrictions throughout New Zealand. This is making it impossible for International competitors to take part and difficult and expensive for North Island competitors. To accommodate those competitors, we are offering the half marathon 10km, 5km and the Kidz Dash as Virtual runs or walks. Competitors can register as per normal but click the Virtual Run or Walk. After the event we will put your results up as a Virtual Race and send you out your medal.
