The Rotorua Mini Marathon, scheduled for 1 May, has also been postponed. A new date will be announced following consultation with the organisers of the Rotorua Marathon.

Registrations for Term 2 events

A decision regarding school sport events into Term 2 will be made by mid-April. Although this is a constantly evolving situation, please continue to register your students for Term 2 events where you feel appropriate, and we will keep you updated regarding any future postponement or cancellations beyond Term 1.

We understand the degree of uncertainty that lies ahead, but the health and wellbeing of our community is a priority. To that end, we are working through options to help support schools and students with resources and assistance for physical activity options going forward. Our team will be in touch over the next week to discuss how we can offer support.

Please contact your school directly if you have any questions.
