The Whitianga Marathon organising team have stated in the current Covid-19 environment there continues to be much uncertainty about whether events can or can’t run over the next 2 months.

New date for Whitianga Marathon 2022

The good news from the organising team is that the event will still be held this year and has been moved to the new date of Saturday 15th October 2022. The team believes this new date will give participants a great reason to train late in winter and is the perfect excuse for a short break to the Coromandel in spring.
