Join us for the 21st birthday celebrations of the HOKA ONE ONE Taupo Half Marathon on Sunday 3rd August for an awesome day out with friends and family. There is now an event option for all fitness levels — 5km, 10km and Half-Marathon so choose your challenge and we’ll see you on the start line.
The Taupo 10km and Half Marathon events are part of the HOKA ONE ONE 30.0 Challenge and the HOKA ONE ONE 63.3 Series. Runners and walkers who sign-up to and complete all three Taupo half marathons (HOKA ONE ONE Tauhara Trail Run - July, HOKA ONE ONE Taupo Half Marathon - August & HOKA ONE ONE Kinloch Off-Road Challenge - September) in the three consecutive months receive a free Marmot finisher's t-shirt whilst those that complete all three 10km events in the 30.0 Series receive a free Marmot Visor
If entering each event separately click here to place your shirt order after completing the first event and before 20 August so you don't miss out.
PLUS, be one of the first 15 people to purchase a new pair of HOKA ONE ONE shoes at the Taupo Half Marathon Event Expo and we will give you a FREE ENTRY into your choice of either the Xterra Race #5 (Waharau Regional Park), Xterra Race #6 (Riverhead Forest) HOKA ONE ONE Kinloch Off-Road Challenge, HOKA ONE ONE LEGEND or SPEIGHTS West Coaster Adventure Run*.
*Entries are limited so we can cannot guarantee you will have your first choice of event.
4 weeks post-IMNZ and 4 weeks prior to IMOZ I went from going very good to going very bad. In all honesty, I did not nail a single session for 3 weeks, but I always believed come race day I would be ok as long as I listened to my body...Ironman Australia Race Report by Mark Bowstead
