Thought about running the Christchurch Airport Marathon this year?
After the success of the Auckland Marathon in recent years, we've decided those in the deep South shouldn't have to miss out on this opportunity!
We want you to run with us!
You do not have to be an engineer or EWB member or even a seasoned runner to take part in the fundraiser. Whether you seek the achievement of running the full, half or 10 km or feel like a walk is more your thing - Everyone is welcome!
Make your marathon experience more meaningful by not only accomplishing a personal goal on race day, but by contributing to a larger mission and giving back to a worthy cause!
Join the Engineers Without Borders Canterbury 2014 team as we work towards a vision of everyone having access to engineering knowledge and resources that lead to a life of opportunity, free from poverty. Engourage your friends and family to sponsor your race day goals by helping a greater cause!

We had a brilliant speaker evening just before Easter! Walter Lewthwaite recounted some of his experiences from various development projects where local views have not always been considered and consequently development projects haven’t gone as planned. He ran a wonderful group activity for us where we, as communities with different spiritual and cultural beliefs and attitudes, had to consider how we might react to foreign aid work being offered to our community. It was a wonderful evening with lots of thought-provoking discussion and we hope to run more equally excellent events like this in the future!
