LoveYerGuts at the Christchurch Marathon


The 2020 event due to take place on Sunday May 31st has been cancelled and will be run in 2021. Inspired by the 1974 Christchurch Commonwealth Games marathon, the ASB Christchurch Marathon takes in much of the same historic route with a flat, fast and scenic tour of iconic landmarks such as the Christchurch Town Hall, Hagley Park and the Avon River. The course is NZ’s fastest & the distance is certified to IAAF & AIMS standard.
