The first Pursuit in Paradise Aitutaki Marathon was held in May 2018 on the idyllic island of Aitutaki. Aitutaki Marathon 2018 winner Cook Islander Kelly Pick was first across the line for the full marathon (42.2km) with a time of 3:36:37
The successful event spanned over 5 days and ran to international guidelines with runners from all parts of world such as Germany, Netherlands, Scotland, Italy, Austria, United States, New Zealand and Australia as well as local Cook Island runners. The Aitutaki Marathon will run annually and we believe it will become an iconic event for marathon runners from around the world as well as locals.
Participants included marathon royalty world record holder Brent Weigner. This event marked the 156th country in which he has run in a marathon and his 325th marathon overall.
