Right beside Lake Rotorua is the Village Green, home of the Rotorua Ekiden.
The village green is bordered by Memorial Drive, Whakaue Street, Lake Road and Lakefront Drive to the west and north respectively with Lake Rotorua nothing more than 100 metres away. Overlooking the Village Green is the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside and it’s sister Hotel Ibis, our host hotels. To read more about these fantastic establishments, check out our Host Hotel page.
The finish/start arch will be set up on the grass and there will be plenty of room for cheerleaders to provide their support, and athletes to rest their tired legs until prize giving. There will be some great food choices on site as well if you get a case of the munchies.
