The 38th annual Taranaki Daily News Half Marathon in New Plymouth on Sunday, 7 October 2018 follows an "undulating but scenic" course.
This event is not being run in 2019, and has been replaced with the NPJW 5K & 10K Fun Run.
The Half Marathon has been run by the New Plymouth Joggers and Walkers Club since 1980. The club was founded in 1976.
It starts and finishes at the Pukekura Raceway and is a picturesque event from the city environs to open countryside with Mt Taranaki as a backdrop.
