New World Marlborough Marathon

New World Marlborough Marathon

Seymour Square, Blenheim, BlenheimSat 3 Dec, 2011

The start/finish is in Seymour Square set virtually in the middle of Blenheim and surrounded by the  beautifully manicured Seymour Square gardens. As a runner or walker you will have a choice of 21.1km (half), 10.5km (quarter) or 5.25km (eighth) and for the hard out weekend warriors and elite there is the full measured 42.2km marathon course for the runners. To check out the course maps click here. Even better, check out portions of the course that we filmed for you by clicking here. Video of 42.2 Course 

There is a 10km team section for Corporate, Social and Families and there are men, women and mixed team categories. The time for the teams is taken on the combined teams time of all four members. This is not a relay!  

We promise that for all distances there will be no more than 200 metres of running through suburbia as you head out onto the Taylor River access system. This access way has been purpose built by the Marlborough District Council as a link for walkers and runners to beautiful rural Marlborough. Within just a few kilometres of the start you will be able to appreciate the stunning countryside and vineyards of New Zealand's wine growing capital. We do pretty well in the sunshine stakes too, sharing the national sunshine hours title with our near neighbours Nelson so can almost promise it will be a stunner of a day.
