Based at Christchurch's iconic Cathedral Square, 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.
The 2017 route is based on the successful 2016 route, with minor alterations to further reduce the temporary impact on traffic flows, the transport network and the ongoing Christchurch rebuild, and to enhance the runner experience. Due to ongoing Christchurch rebuild parts of the course may change, so check back prior to race day.
Participants do need to be aware that parts of the course run through the Red Zone where road surfaces are not first rate. We will make improvements where dangerous, but there may be short sections of gravel where roads have been left unsealed since the earthquakes.
