Queenstown, known as the “Adventure Capital of the World", will impress you from the moment you step off the plane! Located on the South Island, it offers a myriad of options for outdoor enthusiasts.
The New Zealand Sotheby’s Queenstown International Realty Marathon is the country’s most scenic race. It is set between the backdrop of the world-renowned Crown Range and The Remarkables; and takes in the best highlights of the Queenstown Lakes Region including the five-star Milbrook Resort, Arrowtown, Lake Hayes, Shotover River, Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown Gardens and finishes in the heart of Queenstown itself.
New Zealand offers a variety of contrasting and beautiful landscapes. Not only is it a dream destination, but also boasts an impressive history of world record holders in distance running with the likes of Rod Dixon, Peter Snell, John Walker, Don Quax and Allison Roe to name a few. Our package gives you the opportunity to visit Auckland for wine tastings, black beaches and an optional day tour of Waiheke Island in the North; and then travel to the South Island for your race and more adventure. We are happy to work with you to create your customized itinerary to extend your time in New Zealand or the neighboring country of Australia!

Jacqui and Marcie were terrific ringleaders and made the entire experience seamless, fun and gratifying. This tour offered just the right balance of organized group experiences and free time to enjoy all the adventures available in the area. Somehow, Marathon Tours & Travel always assembles a group of travelers that become lifetime friends - and the Queenstown trip was no exception.
Thanks for another memorable experience - Lucy had a great race and even as a non-running spectator, this trip was among the best, international or domestic.
We just returned from our most recent Marathon Tours & Travel experience in Queenstown, New Zealand and wanted to let you know how incredible it was. So great to be on the other side of the pandemic and enjoy international travel without all the restrictions again.
