Hobbiton Movie Set, 501 Buckland Rd, Matamata



Ticket Information:

  • Halfling Marathon: $229.00

The immersive and unique Middle-earth Halfling Marathon™ allows runners and walkers of all levels to explore the unspoiled rolling green hills and storybook landscapes of the Waikato countryside. The track will cover a diverse terrain - from twists and turns over grassy knolls to spectacular vistas with 360 views. Cross trickling streams into vibrant green pastures and through lush pockets of scattered tree-lines across the farmland.

All distances will journey through sites and scenes from the epic trilogies including some locations previously only ventured to by wizards and never-before accessed by the public. Participants will roam through the picturesque village of Hobbiton, through Gandalf’s Cutting, past the Sackville™ Orchard and up to Bag End before weaving down to Bagshot Row and past the sparkling lakefront. If time allows, stop for a brief refreshment at The Green Dragon™ Inn before the final leg of your adventure to the finish line across from The Shire’s Rest™.
