The South Island Half Marathon is being held on Sunday 4th August 2019 at Lake Hood Ashburton. This beautiful lake will host the South Island Half Marathon and 1/6 Marathon.

Held in the beautiful Lake Hood catchment, the run will see runners run around the lake and experience amazing water views throughout the run. Then some of the most amazing home and garden settings and reserves in the South Island.

South Island Half Marathon will cater for all runners; whether you’re a beginner or an elite runner, this fast-flat course will give you the opportunity to do one of the fastest half’s you’ve ever done.

There will be a walking section in both the ½ and 1/6 marathon, plus the introduction of a Hybrid in the 1/2 marathon this year "This allows you to run a bit and walk a bit". With the Kidz Dash being a 1.5km run, this giving them a flavour of the experience of running at the lake and subdivision.
