Run for Rānui House

Lace up on 21 April and get active for a cause with the Frontrunner Christchurch Marathon. Funds this year will go towards Rānui House, which translates to ‘big warm house,’ owned and managed by the Bone Marrow Cancer Trust.

A home away from home, Rānui House offers 26 apartments for families who need to travel to Christchurch for life-saving medical treatment. Located opposite the Christchurch Hospital, it’s a welcoming and comforting space that keeps families close during treatment.

Choose a race distance that suits you, call on some running or walking buddies, and register online. If you’re looking for a different way to enjoy the atmosphere, the streets of Christchurch boast ample opportunity for spectators. Starting in the early morning, with podium awards in the late morning, it’s a great opportunity to rise and make the most of the Sunday, however you choose to get involved. Run, walk, cheer, and donate, for a cause that has longer arms than you might think.


Take in the full extent of Christchurch’s marathon course, with flat and scenic views of the city. Run 42.2km through local landmarks and celebrate well on the finish.

Half marathon
The half marathon is 21.1km of the same flat terrain with the ability to walk or run, a challenge in itself, or a stepping stone to a full marathon next year.

Get involved with this shorter distance, suitable for anyone looking to give it a go and support the cause, without as much stress on the body.

Kids Mara’fun
Bring the kids along, the mara’fun is a safe and exciting course through Hagley Park, with categories and distances for each age group, and a medal on the finish line.
