2. Grantham Street road crossing (39km) - 6:30:00 



Marathon walkers are welcome, however the 'walking' will not be policed.  The purpose of this event is to encourage everyone to participate and finish, whether walking, running, or a combination of both.



We have water stations located approximately every 5-7 km, please refer to the course map.  There will be supplies of water and electrolytes.



Everyone who completes the Kirikiriroa Marathon, including all team participants, will receive a finisher's medal to recognise their hard work and achievement



The focus of this event is predominantly to encourage people to complete the marathon event, particularly those who have not run this distance previously.  There will be no prizegiving, but there will be a social gathering after the event, at a venue/time to be confirmed.



Finish times will be provided by Trident ResultsTiming and published on both our website and theirs. Official timekeeping ends seven hours after race start. Results will be posted on the website as soon as possible thereafter.



Parking is available via entry Gate One and Gate Two of the Hamilton Gardens, off Cobham Drive.  Please follow the instructions of our parking marshals.  Be aware that both of these entry points will be heavily congested for one hour after the start of the event, as they are part of the course.  Parking is also available in surrounding streets. Please refer to location maps.


Please give due consideration to local residents and other Hamilton Gardens visitors when parking.



There are no road closures in place as the course predominantly follows the river trail.  All roads are open to traffic AND NORMAL ROAD RULES MUST BE OBEYED.  Please follow instructions of marshals when crossing Grantham Street & Pukete Road and watch for traffic at all times.



For safety reasons, all forms of wheeled conveyance (baby buggies, roller blades, skate-boards, prams and the like) are not permitted to be used in the event.  Also, no dogs may accompany runners or walkers.
