The safety of all athletes on course is our priority. Our event team considers each race/event individually to determine the entry requirements. Due to course conditions (including insert reasons, which may include multiple laps of the track, density of athletes and tight corners) the NZ Sotheby's International Realty Queenstown Marathon is not suitable to be completed using wheelchairs (racing and non-racing) or with prams. While this race is not suitable, our goal is to make everyone’s racing dreams a reality so if you would like information on other events where the course is able to accommodate wheelchair participation or any other course accessibility needs, please email us at: queenstownmarathon@ironman.com
