6,000 people took part in the 30th. SBS Marathon on 6 June in Christchurch.
The start was at 9am only 300 metres from CentrePoint on Colombo Motel and Jeff went down to cheer the runners on.
The weather was cool with lite rain (I always try to make things sound nice!) although that was easily surpassed by everyone’s eagerness to get going.
It is said to be the easiest marathon course in NZ - Yes! a marathon course can be described as easy!! And there was something for everyone – the full marathon, half marathon, half marathon walk, 10k run, 10k walk, kids marafun 2k and kids marafun 5k2.5km.
With us, of our 12 rooms, 7 rooms were occupied with guests who had booked their Christchurch motel accommodation at CentrePoint on Colombo Motel.
Next year book your Christchurch marathon accommodation early to be sure to get what you need.
