Tauranga International Marathon
Running Events and the City of Tauranga are thrilled to welcome you to the 2021 Tauranga Marathon! The bay city will provide a stunning backdrop for runners and walkers taking part in one of New Zealand’s top city marathons. With a finish line right in the heart of downtown Tauranga, we promise an unforgettable experience on race day – for runners, walkers, dashers, and spectators alike.
Our premier race is the full distance, 42.2km Tauranga Marathon – and we’re pulling out all the stops for our marathoners to offer you an unrivaled event experience. Your course includes highlights such as the ocean beach of Papamoa, the stunning base track around Mauao, the broad sweep of the Harbour Bridge, and the jaw-dropping beauty of the Waikareao Estuary loop. All of that is an aperitif for the main course … a thrilling city center finish in the heart of the bars and restaurants of downtown Tauranga.
