Great Forest Events is recognised as New Zealand’s number one off road marathon and the event is growing in popularity each year with the total number of participants reaching over 3500 in 2017.
Kathy Mitchell, Great Forest Events Chairperson, says "It’s a great event for Horowhenua. It attracts a large number of participants from across New Zealand and around the world!
The event is a great opportunity to change your environment and get active outdoors. The event consists of a marathon run and walk, a half marathon run and walk, a 10km fun run and walk, and a 5km fun run and walk. There is a race to suit every fitness and age level, with beautiful scenery guaranteed.
"Each year we have a diverse range of individuals taking part. Often people use this as their first full or half marathon as it is safe being off the road. Whether you are wanting to complete the full marathon or the 5km event it’s a fun day out for everyone" says Kathy.
