This course is one that is FAST with a number of PB's from participants. It features a virtually flat single out & back route that follows the mighty Waikato River completely on sealed roads. This course will only be used for the Half Marathon participants and no other event distances.

The new timing being in the warmer month of March, that provided better weather conditions and is perfectly positioned 6 weeks prior to the Rotorua Marathon will also be used, so mark this change as a regular one in your calendar.

As New Zealand’s largest and oldest Half Marathon events the Huntly Half Marathon has had a long and enviable history since it started back in March 1981.

The event involves the traditional Half Marathon distance of 21.1km. There is also a 10km, 5km and RUN kids 2km for Under 16 year olds. All events have the option of either a Run or Walk.

The past winners of the event reads like a New Zealand Road running Hall of Fame from Sir John Walker in the early 1980’s to Dale Warrander in the 2000’s.

The Huntly Half Marathon sees huge community involvement from Huntly and the wider Waikato District Council region.
