Mackenzie Half Marathon 21.1km Course Description
Starting on the Village Green just beside the WW1 Statue, head towards Timaru, past Railway Tce entrance and continue to the concrete culvert, which is on the grass opposite Morah, turning left. Follow Gray St around, passing Mackenzie St, then cross Talbot Rd. Still on Gray St pass Argyll Street until you come to the entrance of the Domain. Turn into the Domain, around the bottom end of the flying fox, past the back of the Ice-Skating Rink and head towards the River Track, turning right.
Down the River Track to O'Connors Lane [extension of Talbot Rd], turn left, head down towards the river. Slight right, then left bend across the river, you will come to a farm track that will lead you into a paddock. Cross it to exit onto Tondros Rd. Carry on until you get to Spur Rd. Go up Spur Rd for about 2.5 km where you will see a picnic table on your left. Continue on for about 3.8km. On your left is one farm entrance called ‘The Run’. Only 100 metres past that on your right, is a gate into a paddock. Going into that paddock, follow the right-hand fence line and you will come to a deer fenced lane. Locally known as the Bridle Track. Follow the lane down, until you come out again onto Tondros Rd. Short climb up, then back down which will lead you back to a hard right hand corner in the road, where you will turn left back into the paddock which you ran across earlier. Then it’s a case of following the river track back into the Domain. This time turn left into Gray St, cross to turn right into Talbot Rd, crossing so you can come onto the concrete path of the Village Green where you will see the finishing chute.
You can enter the Mackenzie Half Marathon as a run or a walk.
