Route information
NEW MARATHON COURSE
This brand new marathon course wraps around the lake edge, passing through Taupo’s lakeside communities and along its picturesque bays. Starting and finishing at the Tongariro Domain (Great Lake Centre), the course first heads out and back along lake terrace, then passes back through riverside park and out along Acacia Bay Rd to complete a lake side loop before heading back into town/riverside park.
The second half takes place on the stunning (25 year strong) half marathon course, heading along Lake Terrace and the highway, all the way out to Mahuta Road. From there the course returns back along the lake edge pavements to the Tongariro Domain to finish.
The course is as close to 42.195km as humanly possible without having the course AIMS certified. We used all of the following forms of measurement:
GPS - using two separate devices
Measuring wheel
Vehicle/bike odometers
21KM Course
A loop course, mostly on a flat scenic road on the edge of Lake Taupo. Starting at the Tongariro Domain (Great Lake Centre) the course goes along Lake Terrace and the highway, all the way out to Mahuta Road from there the course returns along the lake edge pavements back to the Tongariro Domain.
10KM Course
A scenic out and back course along the lakefront to 2 Mile Bay.
