This is the one for the show ponies! Your chance to anchor your team home to a glorious finish as the last leg of the day brings you back to where it all started – Rotorua Village Green.

From Puketawhero Park, take Vaughans Rd right to end to join up with Te Ngae Rd. A super wide footpath takes you to the Sudima Hotel where a new section of course now takes you past the Polynesia Spa and through the heart of beautiful Government Gardens. Hinemaru and Whakaue streets take you to the edge of the village green on Memorial Drive where your team mates will be waiting to join you for the final, glorious 100 metres to the finish line. Congrats! You just ran (part of) a marathon!

All teams need to take the upmost care at Changeover Points

We know the changeover points are a lot of fun and it’s very exciting waiting for your runner to arrive before you dash off to the next changeover. However, all participants MUST take the utmost care of themselves and those around them. Please, please, please – this is not the Olympics and a few seconds will not matter at the end of the afternoon. Team drivers – you MUST enter, park and exit the changeover vicinity slowly and safely. Concentrate on the road and those around you, not the race. Team members, look out for other cars when you exit your vehicle – you are not bulletproof!
