Virtual Marathon - ENTRIES NOW OPEN!

Registration costs $29.50 NZD which includes postage of your medal (within New Zealand only). Postage overseas will be provided on an individual basis once your location has been provided - please bare with us while we work through this.

Late entries will be accepted until midnight (New Zealand time) on Thursday 11 March 2021.

Entry to the Kirikiriroa Marathon will require you to provide some personal details, and a statement that you have completed basic training to the point that you believe you can complete a marathon run/walk. You will be asked to confirm that you enter the marathon at your own risk.

Start any time after 00:01 13 March 2021. Must be completed by 23:59 14 March 2021. These times are based on your local time zone, not necessarily New Zealand time.

Participants in the marathon must complete the full 42.2km of the standard marathon in a single run or walk.

As with previous Kirikiriroa Marathons, the on-line registration will promote donations to charities. For the 2021 event, these charities are Achilles International NZ and Waikato Breast Cancer Research Trust.

There will be no refunds or transfers.

Marathon walkers are welcome. The purpose of this event is to encourage everyone to participate and finish, whether walking, running, or a combination of both.

Every competitor who completes the virtual marathon will receive a finisher's medal and completion certificate to recognise their hard work and achievement. Each medal will be engraved with your name, elapsed time and date of the event. This service is provided by our sponsors, Davy Engravers.

Your medal will be posted to you once your time has been submitted into EventPlus.

On completion of the run/walk, entrants will be required to enter their time into EventPlus, our registration portal. Entrants will receive notification of this requirement when initially entering the virtual marathon.

Strava is also a great digital platform to record your run should you not have a watch. Membership of Strava is free. You can find Kirikiriroa Marathon Society at https://www.strava.com/clubs/kirikiriroa-marathon.

Your ‘results’ will be tabulated by age and gender on the basis of elapsed time.

The Kirikiriroa Marathon Society asks that you share photographs and the tagging of the marathon (@kirikiriroamarathon) with other participants and in your social media posts.

Thank you for supporting us during these uncertain times. We hope 2022 will see us return to normal - taking in some of the most spectacular scenery Waikato has to offer!
