Travel information

Accommodation

The Munro Leys Suva Marathon 2024 Race Number pick up is going to be held on 7th June 2024 from 12pm – 8pm at the Banyan Room in the Holiday Inn, Suva.

If you are coming from outside of Fiji as an international participant of the marathon, we recommend Holiday Inn or Grand Pacific Hotel for your stay here in Suva city.

There are other hotels and places to stay but not only do you get a discounted accommodation rate at these hotels, you are right across the road from the start area!

Book a room at Holiday Inn or Grand Pacific Hotel

Holiday inn at night

Holiday Inn Specials

Special discounted rate for the Munro Leys Suva Marathon 2024 will be $$$ bb up to two adults inclusive of all taxes and unlimited internet or $300 for room only.

Airlines

Our national flag carrier is Fiji Airways. Several airlines fly to Fiji like Korean Air, Virgin Australia, JetStar, Aircalin and others, so wherever you may be coming from, you are sure to find a way to get here. Most international flights go directly to Nadi international airport only and not in Suva so you’ll have to either take a 30-minute connecting flight, ride on a bus or embark on a 3-hour scenic drive from Nadi international airport to Suva city. Try to book your tickets early so you can get better and cheaper rates.

The beautiful Fiji islands

Fiji is in the heart of the South Pacific, and beyond the beaches and pristine islands we are known for, is the vibrant little capital of Fiji – Suva city where the Suva Marathon takes place annually.

Suva is Fiji’s commercial and political centre, and is considered a hub in this part of the world where multiple nationalities, languages and cultures converge.

There are many shopping, dining and nightlife activities, and we are just 40 minutes away from the country’s adventure capital, Pacific Harbour.

Training programme

We invite all of you to train with us along the seawall or around Suva on a day that suits you. Our social runs are a great way to motivate each other! Our weekly timed run is on Thursday nights and our monthly Time Trials are on the first Saturday of every month.

There are options to join us for swimming and biking sessions through the week as well if you are looking for low impact options between runs. Please contact the club member contacts via email or mobile if you have any questions or just to let them know when to expect you.

You can also contact us here if you would like to join in.
