In 2015, Robertson set a New Zealand and Oceanian record in the half marathon with a time of 59:47 at Marugame. Robertson became only the fourth non-African runner in history to run the distance in under one hour.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics Robertson finished 12th in the men's 10000 metres with a time of 27:33.67. The time broke Dick Quax's 39-year-old New Zealand national record by more than 8 seconds.

Robertson was selected to represent New Zealand in both the marathon and 10,000 m at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, and planned to contest one of the two events. However, he withdrew from the team on 5 April 2018, after his training was hampered by a groin injury earlier in the year.
