Buller Gorge Marathon
New Zealand's most scenic marathon course commences at Hawks Crag and heads up the gorge to a turning point near Berlin's Hotel, then back down the scenic, undulating Buller Gorge Highway to a finish at Victoria Square, Westport. The half-marathon is a one-way run starting near the Ohika-iti River Bridge and also finishes at Victoria Square. Both full and half-marathon courses are certified. Every kilometre is clearly marked.
