Queen Charlotte Relay: CANCELLED

Sorry this event has been cancelled


  • Sat 19 Sep, 11:00am – 5:30pm


Waitohi Domain, Dublin Street, Picton, Marlborough Sounds



Cancelled due to COVID-19.

This relay is one of the oldest road relays held in New Zealand and still running on a State Highway. The first relay was on 17th September 1982 and has been competed for annually since without a break.

The course has had only minor changes mainly in Havelock for safety reasons. We have teams coming from all over New Zealand to compete and have a fun day into the bargain.

This event is a 5 person relay starting at Waitohi Domain, Picton finishing in Havelock outside the Havelock Hotel.

The relay was for runners only until 2002 when due to popular demand we introduced a walkers grade. The walkers are not refereed so it is social walking.
