Back to the Future in 2019...

In 2019 the ASB Christchurch Marathon is returning to the Christchurch Town Hall for the first time since 2010. After an eight year rebuild following the earthquakes it is due to re-open on March 2019. The marathon race pack pick up (June 1st) and start/finish (June 2nd) will all be based there thanks to the support of Vbase, who manage many of Christchurch's premier event venues, including the Christchurch Town Hall.
