Only eight weeks until we welcome you all at Villa Maria Estate for the New World Marlborough Marathon #3 on Saturday 1 December. Entries are filling fast so get your entry in early. Enter now to secure your place at the start line.  


Our focus is to spoil every participant and not just our place getters. Registration is like an event in itself and Andrea, Mark and the New World team will be there to welcome you with a bag of goodies and Villa Maria will be offering you some wine tasting before you leave. A little something to calm any pre race nerves!

Add to that a bottle of Villa Maria wine for all full and half entrants and heaps of fabulous spot prizes. People rave about our race bags from New World as being the best they have ever received at any event with New World also spoiling you again at the finish line. Thank you to our Blenheim contingent for supporting Blenheim New World at every opportunity throughout the year.  


The New World Marlborough Marathon Training Series is underway and new faces are welcome every week. Whether you’re a Sunday stroller or a lean mean speed machine come and join the fun. Bring workmates, flatmates, good mates or the whole family! Visit our training page for full details.

Here’s a challenge for you. Team New World is aiming to have around 50 staff at the start line on 1 December and all are planning to beat the bosses PB! So round up your colleagues and enjoy a fantastic Marlborough day out … and a bit of friendly competition.
