This inaugural event will run annually and we believe it will become an iconic event for marathon junkies and runners from around the world as well as locals.

We expect around 250 visitors for this event each year. This event will be an international event spanning over 5 days and will be run to international guidelines. Turama Pacific Travel Group is the event organizer and has engaged the services of a professional event team Destination Management Cook Islands to help in the coordination and running of the event.
