First held in 2010 – and with a respectful nod to its predecessor, the Coateville Fun Run – the Coatesville Half Marathon has quickly become a highlight on the Auckland road running calendar. The 234 trailblazers who took part in that first event could scarcely imagine that by 2012, their numbers would have swelled to nearly 1600. 2017 will see the Coatesville Half Marathon as the third race in the new Garmin Auckland Half Marathon Series.
Fixed for two weeks after the Grand Finale of Running Events’ Westfield Albany Lakes Summer Series to give participants a fantastic opportunity to round off a summer of fitness and commit to an excellent end-of-season goal. The Coatesville race attracts fast runners, slow walkers and everyone in between. If you enjoy making the most of the summer in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and love to get away from it all just minutes from home – this is the event for you.
