BSP Aitutaki Marathon

BSP Aitutaki Marathon

Start Date: 28 April 2025

End Date: 1 May 2025

Three hours, 19 minutes and 14 seconds is how fast New Zealand runner Kyle Simpson claimed the 2024 BSP Aitutaki Marathon ‘Pursuit in Paradise’ 42.2km race winning title.

His uncle also came 1st in the 21.1km course that crisscrossed the paradise island of Aitutaki, supporting his nephew in more ways than one.

Second place getter in the Full Marathon race was another New Zealander, Jeremy Solakof in a time of 3:28:50. Another record upon previous years’ race completion times.

Many runners commented on the stunning beauty of the course, others thought it was a rather challenging race landscape to navigate. Certainly a unique life-time memory.

The hugely successful event in 2024 attracted 46 keen runners and spanned over 4 days, and ran to international guidelines with runners from all parts of the world such as Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, UK, USA, Japan, New Zealand and Australia as well as local Cook Islands runners.

The Aitutaki Marathon will run annually and we believe it will become an iconic event for marathon junkies and runners from around the world as well as local runners.

If you were ever to have a bucket list called 'Paradise Marathon' this one would be at the top.
