Due to the ongoing restrictions under Alert Level 2, it is with heavy hearts and deep regret that the Emerson’s Dunedin Marathon is cancelled.

This was a difficult decision and we feel deeply for our loyal participants who have trained long and hard for this years event.

The safety of our participants, volunteers and supporters is paramount and the aroha and support received has been overwhelming as the committee worked tirelessly through every scenario to have the marathon happen.

We are grateful and humbled by the support we continue to receive from our wonderful group of sponsors, namely Emerson’s, Southern Motor Group, Shoe Clinic, Speedprint, NZME, Uptown Art, Fulton Hogan, Thermatech and Allied Press. Also, to the many spot prize sponsors, stall holders, community groups, Caversham Harrier Club members and friends who were to volunteer on the day, thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

All entries from this year will automatically roll over to the 2022 Emerson’s Dunedin Marathon which is planned for 11 September 2022. However, if you find you are unable to take part in the 2022 event a 75% refund can be claimed by contacting: info@dunedinmarathon.co.nz.
