Sing Relay

The Sing Relay is a unique two person fun relay on a 5km course. Both team members start together. However, the faster runner runs ahead to the half way point and then turns around to meet their other runner. At the point of meeting, both runners turn around and run back to finish line the exact way they have just run. The team that takes top honours is the team that has both runners home first.

This is a relay for all abilities and is loads of fun. You will either run less or more than 5km depending on your ability and that of your team member.

Doors to the clubrooms open at 1.00pm with teams picked at 1.30 and the race starting at 1.50pm.

Come and have fun, and bring a small something as a contribution towards afternoon tea.
Look forward to seeing you there!

NEW is the key word for NZ’s oldest standalone Half Marathon. Our race organisers RunNZ has taken all your feedback on board and made some MAJOR changes for 2016 and beyond!

NEW COURSE! This new course is one that is expected to be FAST. It features a virtually flat single out & back route that follows the mighty Waikato River on completely on sealed roads. This course will only be used for the Half Marathon participants and no other event distances.

NEW DATE! So we are moving to the warmer month of March, 20th March infact. This will provide better weather conditions to run in and is perfectly positioned 6 weeks prior to the Rotorua Marathon for those of you that need a Build Up race.

As New Zealand’s largest and oldest Half Marathon events the Huntly Half Marathon has had a long and enviable history since it started back in March 1981.

Growing over the years to a peak of just over 3000 in 2010 and sustaining numbers between the 2500-3000 participant mark over the last decade is a testament to the tremendous job done by Hamilton Hawks and the high regard this event has around New Zealand.
