Scott Weatherall, of Brighton, gives the thumbs up as he nears the halfway point in the Dunedin Marathon this morning.

More than 2300 people were expected to take part in this year’s events.

A 5km fun run/walk course has been included for the first time this year. This shorter distance provides a safe introduction to those who may wish to return for the 10km, half marathon and marathon courses in future years, or as an ideal distance for family participation in the event.

The half marathon will double as the New Zealand Half Marathon Championship.

The Dunedin Marathon was first held in 1979. The course changed last year and ends at Forsyth Barr Stadium, rather than at Port Chalmers.
