The 42km journey offers fabulous views for competitors throughout. All runners start and finish on the Village Green where a bumper crowd will cheer them on their way in the morning and welcome them back somewhere between two and six hours later.
The Rotorua Ekiden follows New Zealand’s most famous running route, the course utilised for the last 50 years by the Rotorua Marathon. Rotorua’s long association with the marathon distance was inevitable as a result of the near exact distance around the circumference of the lake.
