I grew up in rural Canterbury and after a few years living abroad have moved back to the beautiful New Zealand and live in Christchurch city. I have completed 4 marathons including the Midnight Sun Marathon in Norway and of course the local Christchurch marathon, along with several races in the shorter distances. I love travelling and find running the best way to explore new places so can’t wait to show you around Christchurch. We are blessed to have it all, from lush green parks, golden sandy beaches and stunning hill trails. Christchurch is also unique in that part of the of the city is brand new, following the 2011 earthquake, with funky new buildings, bars and eateries popping up all the time, while some of the old treasures still remain. I know you will love running in and around Christchurch just as much as I do and I can’t wait to show you around.
