Craig Michael Barrett (born 16 November 1971 in Opunake) is a New Zealand athlete specializing in racewalking. He was the dominant racewalker in New Zealand for many years and is the nation's record holder for the 3 km, 20 km, 30 km, 50 km and 2-hour disciplines. He attended the Olympic Games in Atlanta (1996), Sydney (2000) and Athens (2004). He won a silver medal in the 50 km walk at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

During the 1998 Commonwealth Games, Barrett collapsed within one kilometre of the finish line whilst leading the 50 km walk, reportedly as a result of dehydration.[1]
