Prebbleton Rugby Football Club

Grassroots rugby is near and dear to our hearts here at Miles Continental, which is why the Prebbleton Rugby Football Club is a great fit for us. As sponsors of the club, you’ll find our vehicles scattered around the field on game day, supporting the players, coaches, and fans who help the community kids enjoy rugby from a young age.

City2Surf Fun Run

City2Surf is a Christchurch fun run that weaves a 14km (or 6km!) course from the centre of the city to just near the ocean in Ferrymead. Practically an institution, the race has been around for years and provides Cantabrians with a fun way to spend the day outside, plus a great reason to get fit!

We provide the event organiser with a vehicle leading up to the race to help run important race errands, plus a lead car on the day to keep the speedy motivated. Catch us at the finish line handing out ice cold waters and cheering on our own team of Miles Continental runners!

Frontrunner HOKA Christchurch Marathon

The iconic Christchurch Marathon is a flat, fast, and extremely beautiful course through the Garden City. Renowned as New Zealand’s fastest course, there is something for everyone with a 10km, 21km, 42km, and even a kids fun run!

We provide the team with a vehicle to help them get around in the lead up to the event, and to lead the pack on the day. Be sure to look out for our team of Miles Continental runners on the course!

International Track Meet

We’re proud to support the International Track meet, established in 2009, it has become a well recognised event in the athletics world, with some of New Zealand’s best athletes competing for the top spots. We supplied Volkswagen vans and an SUV for the athletes to get around Christchurch, and love welcoming them all to our city!

Free Dive for Mental Health

An initiative led by free-diving instructor Ian Barker, Free Dive for Mental Health is a programme designed to help people struggling with their mental health. Ian has seen first-hand the benefits his techniques have, through the combination of disciplined breath work, physical exercise, and interaction with nature, makes ocean free-diving and spearfishing a uniquely powerful tool to help with a range of issues, including chronic anxiety, depression, anger management, and addiction recovery.

We’ve provided the team with a Volkswagen Multivan to drive the participants to dive locations during the trial.
