Celebrating its 30th year, the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon has been the city’s favourite footrace for three decades since its launch in 1986. The flat and scenic course which starts out from the city’s famous Westpac stadium is seen as a great way to get into distance running with all the traditional distance runs available including the full and half marathons, the 5 and 10k runs and a kids magic mile.
