Queen's Birthday Weekend - Sunday 3 June 2018

Mt Runners & Walkers Half Marathon


Event Information


Now entering its 32nd year, the Mt Runners & Walkers event is the original Mount Maunganui half marathon - enjoyed by over 1400 participants, and countless supporters and spectators, each year. Post event feedback consistently highlights the event's super friendly atmosphere and vibe. The course layout keeps everyone quite tight so there are always supporters, spectators, entertainers, cheerleaders and marshals close by.

The Mt Runners Half Marathon is also one of the least expensive half marathons in the country, offering big bang for a competitor’s buck. Any profits are reinvested into making the following year's event better and given back to the local community.


  • Half Marathon Run/Walk
  • 10km Run/Walk
  • 5km Run/Walk

The start line for all events is Marine Parade in front of the Mount Maunganui Surf Club. All courses begin by running/walking East along Marine Parade until reaching their respective turnaround points. Once competitors have turned at their respective turnaround points they will run/walk back through the start area then turn left onto Adams Ave and be directed around Mauao Base Track (clockwise).

The Half Marathon course completes two full laps.
