The Hanmer Four Square half marathon takes competitors on a unique journey through Hanmer Forest amongst some amazing mountain scenery. The is a great pre race for The Christchurch Marathon.
After an initial 2km climb the route follows forest roads to a split at Jollies Pass Rd. Here the half marathon takes racers through the main block of the forest, before linking up with the 10km route to run through the flat Heritage forest, and a final sprint down the road to the finish at Hanmer School.
The final 5km course follows Jollies Pass Road for 2km where it joins the 10km and half marathon route to the finish.
