The Monaco Marathon boasts one of the most scenic and the most affordable marathons in the country. 

The event is now in its 10th year and organised by Nelson Tasman Community Sport Events Inc, a not-for-profit organisation whose ethos is to promote participation in sport whilst raising much needed funds for good causes in the Nelson Tasman Area. Details of our other events can be found HERE.

The idea of this event is to break down the barriers to participation and give everyone a good chance to compete in or complete a full marathon (42.2km) running/walking event.

The event boasts both a solo full marathon, with run or walk options. For those with a little less confidence, you can enter as a two-person relay and do approximately a half marathon each or get together with some mates and enter as a four-person team.
