4 Paws Marathon

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.
