The current edition of this event is on 3 June 2018.
The Aurora Handicap Marathon in Upper Hutt on Sunday, 5 June 2016 has staggered start times based on the estimated time of completion so everyone finishes at more or less the same time.
There is a full marathon, 2x half marathon relay and 4x quarter marathon relay. Start times for all events are based on the handicapper's estimate of the time you will take to complete your chosen event. All competitors have a reasonable chance to take line honours.
This is a picturesque road race, 2/3 of which is rural. There is a light meal at the conclusion of the race.
4 x 10.5km Relay
2 x 21.1km Relay
