Join Pursuit in Paradise Aitutaki Marathon

If you ever had a bucket list called 'Paradise Marathon' this one would be right there at the top!  Held annually in the Cook Islands on the picturesque island of Aitutaki, the Pursuit In Paradise BSP Aitutaki Marathon will once again take in 2021!

The first Aitutaki Marathon was held May 2018 with an attendance of participants from all corners of the world.  Marathon runners hailing from Germany, Netherlands, Scotland, Italy, Austria, United States, New Zealand and Australia as well as local Cook Island runners.  Marathon royalty and world record holder Brent Weigner also participated, which marked the 156th country in which he has run in a marathon as well as his 325th marathon overall. 

The BSP Aitutaki Marathon will run annually and we believe it will become an iconic event for marathon junkies and runners from around the world!

A pasta dinner for all runners and supporters will be held to ensure everyone is fuelled up for the big race tomorrow.
