@corigonzalezma1 Its a matter or language/context I guess. The first recorded marathon in NZ was around Lake Rotorua in 1962 for the Rotorua Athletic and Harrier Club championship. So its technically the longest in terms of how long its been around.
A guy at my gig last night told me the Rotorua marathon is the longest one in NZ.
Just completed Rotorua half marathon, finally had an timed event go ahead & as it is off road, a PB for the course by a long shot. https://t.co/hAaR9UB6L9

@CheckpointRNZ @radionz Probably because I went to the Rotorua Marathon and it was rained out. There were people from around the world, some had come specifically for the event,and there were grown men crying. We all got our medals that meant nothing.People caught in floods had plenty of help from runer
