The Rotorua Marathon has a proud history and heritage associated with it and has seen some a number of New Zealand's top distance runners take on the lake. International elite entries have also joined us on the starting line and been successful in taking out the title.

The Rotorua Marathon operates an Elite Assistance programme. To be considered for the Rotorua Marathon Elite Athlete Assistance programme, runners must have achieved the following times in the past 18 months:


Marathon  Half Marathon
Men   2:35:00 Men   1:11:00 
Women   2:56:00 Women   1:20:00

Achieving the above times does not automatically guarantee runners to any benefits but all applications will duly considered.
