QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND - SUNDAY 31 MAY 2020
Now entering its 34th 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.
