Run for Queenstown

Published: 06/03/2022



A world first running experience, using leading timing technology to record your performance, whenever you choose to race. Results are uploaded to our Official Leaderboard, creating an online community that can compete and grow together.


We have installed permanent timing gates to record your performance. This is not a virtual event. Run or Walk. Solo or in a Group. Go with the kids or the Dog. Get your workmates involved. Race anytime.



Official tracks invite you to run your own race to support the Queenstown community during a week long event from 18-25th March. Choose from 13 routes in and around Queenstown, register your timing chip, pick your starting gate on the Frankton track and RUN. People that run during the week will go in the draw to win loads of amazing prizes and the best news is the more times you run, the more chances you have to WIN!


Sport is crucial for our mental health and with so many cancelled sporting events, this is an opportunity to race in your own time and give back which is particularly important during these challenging times and to show support for our town, Official Tracks will be giving 50% of  proceeds to Central Lakes Family Services and Greatest Needs Fund, to support mental health in the region.


Don’t miss out! Purchase your timing band today.

    If running as a group, try to pass a gate one after another to make sure each tag is read properly.
  2. Do not bend your timing chip. Do not put it next to metallic objects like phone/keys.
