Nelson Striders Half Marathon and 10K

The Nelson Striders Half Marathon and 10K features and out and back course along Nelson's picturesque Maitai Valley Rd.

The Half Marathon has staggered start times so people will finish around 10:30am and there are prizes for the people who finish closest to their estimated time (down to the second). No watches are allowed for this event!

This unique event was inspired by the Nelson Striders running group who made international press when out for their Sunday morning run up the Maitai Valley in August 1994. What started as a peaceful jog ended up with the group scrambling up a bank to avoid an agitated wild boar. Caretaker Trevor Ruffell came to the rescue and had to drown the pig with his bare hands in the Maitai River.
