Excitement builds for Queenstown International Half Marathon

DATE 5th Sep 2018



New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to once again be the exclusive real estate sponsor of the Queenstown International Half Marathon, the world’s most beautiful marathon (we aren’t at all biased!).

From a Stretch Station to competitions, athlete ambassadors and giveaways, we’re supporting this internationally recognised event in a big way! Saturday 17 November is the date so if you are competing, good luck with your training.

This is a flagship partnership for us due to our commitment to supporting health and wellness and that sentiment clearly resonates with all national and international participants. And all of this set in the beautiful backdrop of mountain ranges and glacial lakes that is Queenstown.

Athletes are drawn from all over New Zealand and the globe to pound along 21KMs of New Zealand’s best hard packed trail and to help the athletes soothe their post-race legs, we’re again hosting a Stretch Station at the finish line. Runners and walkers can warm down with the help of Personal Trainers and stretch equipment.

We’ll also have some useful giveaways for participants to take home.

Marathon athletes can also be in the running (ahem) to win two nights’ accommodation at Queenstown Hill’s Atanga House. Courtesy of our Luxury Rentals, you can return for a more relaxing visit staying in one of the resort’s most luxurious properties.

Looking for some training inspiration? Keep an eye out for the New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty Ambassadors profiles. They are the 2017 Half Marathon winners who we are sponsoring to compete again this year and they’ll be sharing their stories with you via our social media channels.
