About This Activity

The Feilding Marathon started in 1955, and has been run every year since, making it the 9th longest running marathon in the world and the longest such event in the Southern Hemisphere. Feilding Moa Harrier Club member Roy Lamberton was the driving force in those early years, and the Half Marathon event still bears his name.

In recent weeks we were sad to hear of the passing of the 1955 winner, Norman Pearce (previously from Taihape). Norman was a 100 yard sprinter turned marathon runner and Feilding was his first marathon.

Whether you wish to Walk or Run, set your own goal and choose from 5km, 10km half marathon, or the ultimate challenge, the 42.195km Marathon.

The Marathon typically attracts entrants from throughout NZ as well as a number of international runners and walkers

Looking forward to seeing you here
