Rotorua Marathon

Want to make a difference? Join with us and get moving for mental health today.

Make your Move for Mental Health! Join the event in celebration of a loved one,
to improve your own mental health, or simply to raise awareness of mental health around New Zealand.

Your donations help us support kiwis through: policy and advocacy, Māori development, suicide prevention and bereavement, positive mental health promotion, resource and information services, and the MHF website.

Move for mental health your way. Walk, run, skip or dance your way to the finish line.
Choose from four event options - 5.5km, 10km, half or full marathon.

Around 1 in 5 of us will experience a mental health challenge this year

Nearly 50% of us will experience a mental illness in our lifetime

Our youth suicide rate is high compared to other OECD countries
