The only full Marathon event on offer in the Nelson Tasman region.

Sunday 18th June 2017


Heading into its fourth year, the Monaco Marathon boasts one of the most scenic, and not to mention the most affordable marathons in the country. By entering, you’re also helping a good cause, with 100% of your $20 ‘entry fee’ going to charity.

The idea of the event is to break down the barriers to participation and give everyone a good chance to compete or complete a full marathon running event (42.2km).

The event boasts both a full marathon run or walk option, and for those with a little less confidence, you can enter as a two-person team, to lighten the load.
