The Garden City's favourite festival of fitness turns 40 in 2021.

Inspired by the 1974 Commonwealth Games, the ASB Christchurch Marathon attracts almost 5000 runners and walkers from all ends of NZ and more than a dozen countries.

Based at Christchurch's iconic Town Hall, 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.

Recognised as NZ's fastest course, Christchurch is the place for PB's. The Full and Half Marathon are certified to IAAF & AIMS standards, so it's the perfect place to qualify for international events such as Boston.

But with a 10k and Kids Mara'Fun, there is something here for all age, ability and aspiration.

But don't take out word for it, check out the ASB Christchurch Marathon for yourself... More Here.
