The current edition of this event is on 5 May 2018.
The Lion Foundation Rotorua Marathon from Friday, 2 May to Saturday, 3 May 2014 is an annual event with full 42.2km marathon, 21.1km half marathon, 10.55km quarter marathon and 5.5km running/walking events on Saturday, and a kids 2.5km fun run the day before.
One of the unique charms of the full marathon is one lap of Lake Rotorua is almost exactly the full marathon distance (give or take a few hundred metres). No more. No less. Perfect.
