The inaugural 4 Paws Marathon is an off-road walking/running event set in Bottle Lake Forest and the beaches of Christchurch. It is a celebration of "exercise is medicine" as well as a salute to our best friend and loyal exercise ally - the humble dog.
This completely off-road event is the ultimate expression of freedom that is sure to invigorate and refresh your senses - being soft underfoot and with spectacular scenery to boot.
4 Paws is designed to cater for all levels of fitness, with a choice of 5km, 10km, 15km, half marathon (21.1km), and marathon (42.2km) distances. There is also a 2.4km Rascal’s Run for children aged 5 to 9 years - children must be accompanied by an adult.
