The current edition of this event is on 5 May 2018.
The Lion Foundation Rotorua Marathon on Saturday, 6 May 2017 is an annual event with full 42.2km marathon, 21.1km half marathon, 10.55km quarter marathon and 5.5km running/walking events.
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.
