The Rotorua Off Road Half Marathon is an annual event at the spectacular Whakarewarewa Forest. Event options include the half marathon, quarter marathon and 5K; and 3K and 1.5K "Little Devils" kids events.
The half marathon course follows a mixture of smooth gravel forest roads and scenic forest trails and is made up of a 10km loop followed by an 11.1km loop, designed to be achievable by competitors of all abilities.
All events are based at the Waipa Sawmill Recreation area adjacent to the mountain bike carpark.
Travel directions from the official website: travel 2km south of Rotorua on the Rotorua-Taupo Highway (SH5), turn left into Waipa Mill Road and the registration marquee is 500m from this corner on your left. Car park marshalls will direct you to the designated parking areas. The registration, start, finish and prizegivings are all held on this recreation reserve.
