Huntly Rugby Club, Riverview Road, Huntly
Entries for the 2018 Huntly Half Marathon will open in late 2017.
one of the longest running half marathons in New Zealand.
Widely regarded as New Zealands Classic Half Marathon event, the Huntly Half Marathon is NZ's Oldest standalone Half Marathon event having started in 1981.
This course is one that is FAST. It features a virtually flat single out & back route that follows the mighty Waikato River completely on sealed and closed roads. This course will only be used for the Half Marathon participants and no other event distances.
March provides great weather and running conditions, and is perfectly positioned 7 weeks prior to the Rotorua Marathon and 8 weeks prior to the Hawkes Bay Marathon, so therefore the perfect build up run for either of these events.
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.
