April 8, 2018 sees the inaugural edition of the Auckland Waterfront Half Marathon. Several years in the making, this is the half marathon that Auckland runners and walkers have been waiting for. Flat, fast, traffic free and spectacularly scenic, the Waterfront Half Marathon falls beautifully at the end of a summer of fitness in the City of Sails, making it the Grand Finale of the Mizuno Auckland Half Marathon Series.
The event base is at the Selwyn Reserve, right in the heart of Mission Bay. The race starts on Tamaki Drive, heading first to Mechanics Bay with the city skyline as a sighter before heading back along the stunning waterfront ribbon towards St Heliers. Finishers will feel the spray from the iconic Mission Bay fountain as they cross the line, earning themselves a beautiful and unique commemorative finisher medal and … maybe … probably … a new PB. And if you’re not quite up to the half marathon just yet, there’s still the 10K Classic, 5K Fun Run & Walk or 2K Kids’ Dash to aim for. Yep, you guys get a medal too!
It promises to be an amazing event … we hope you can join us.
