The Christchurch Airport Marathon consists of a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km and Kids 3km and 1km MaraFun. It is run each year on Queen's Birthday Weekend. The marathon, half marathon and 10K events can be run, walked or raced in a wheelchair.
Until 2010 the Christchurch Marathon started and finished outside the town hall in the center of the city. Due to the earthquake in 2011, it was re-located to Lincoln University, and from 2012 is at the Christchurch Airport.
The start and finish for all events is at an Event Village on Orchard Road, just 5min walk away from Christchurch Airport's main terminal, and 10min walk from event host the Copthorne Hotel Commodore. This is shown approximately in the map below.
