The Marton-Wanganui Ultramarathon covers approximately 66.4km along the back roads between the towns of Marton and Wanganui. The ultramarathon is run in conjunction with the Marton-Wanganui Relay.

I like this event so much that I have competed in it for ten of the twelve years that it has been running: five times as a runner and five times as a walker.
