The Wanaka Sun Marathon is an off road sporting event held in April each year, with this year's event on Saturday, 8 April 2017.
April is a great time to experience the autumn colours that really light up the river and forest trails.
The Marathon, 10km & 5km events all start at the Albert Town Tavern on the outskirts of Wanaka. All are loop courses and are run over well groomed trails that meander alongside the beautifully scenic Cluther River.
This event has been replaced by the Kawarau River Run.
