A new event for 2022 is the Off Road Half Marathon. It 21.137km, but this can also be classified as a Half Marathon distance if required.
Starting in the Rakaia Domain, competitors run along the Rakaia Walkway, before turning into the Rakaia riverbed and running westwards along riverbed tracks until reaching a turnaround area, approximately 8.5 km from the start. The returning track is eastwards on a different riverbed track until reaching the Rakaia Walkway, which the competitors then continue running along before turning right onto West Town Belt, and returning via the main entrance of the Domain to the finishing line.
A reminder that majority of this course is on uneven surfaces so suitable footwear is advisable.
