New Zealand Half Marathon Championships update

The 2022 Athletics NZ Half Marathon Championships will feature as part of the Cambridge Half Marathon on Sunday 16 October.

Originally the Cambridge Half Marathon, 10km and 5km race clashed with the rescheduled Rotorua Marathon on the weekend of 17/18 September.

However, event organisers – Cambridge Athletic and Harrier Club – have pushed the event back to 16 October with all current entries automatically transferred to the new date. The 2021 event was cancelled and as the new date represents yet another change, the club has generously allowed a refund of entry fees (less admin costs) for any participants who cannot participate. To be eligible for the refund via email by 30 April.

All current entrants will be contacted via email. If that email is not received, entrants may contact us at

“We acknowledge the flexibility and understanding shown by event organisers to change the date of the 2022 Cambridge Half Marathon,” explains Athletics NZ Out of Stadia Co-ordinator John Bowden.

“We are looking forward to the 2022 New Zealand Half Marathon Championships in Cambridge, and I’m sure athletes will enjoy competing on a fast, fabulous and scenic course in pursuit of national title honours.”
