We’ve joined Rotorua Marathon as an official charity partner

Live your moment and enable others to live theirs!

February 12, 2019

We’re calling on people like you to join our team of runners for the Rotorua Marathon and run for a great cause! Rotorua Community Hospice has officially joined Rotorua Marathon as a charity partner in 2019.

Strap on you running shoes, get fit, fundraise with dedicated support from our team and above all, support Rotorua Community Hospice.

The Rotorua Marathon is New Zealand’s oldest and most prestigious major marathon. In 2019 the event will celebrate its 55th year. The event caters for runners and walkers of all levels with a full marathon (42.2km) and off-road half marathon (21km) as well as a 10km and 5km fun run.

You will help provide 24/7 care and support in the Rotorua community for anyone with a life limiting illness e.g. heart failure, motor neuron disease or cancer.

Our goal is to help people make the most of their lives; to live every moment in whatever way is important to them. Run the marathon to live your every moment and support others to do the same!

Sign up to the Rotorua Marathon, click Rotorua Hospice as the charity you would like to support and we’ll be in touch. Or email us at pr@rotoruahospice.co.nz if you have any questions.
