The 2015 Waitakere Charity Half Marathon & 11km Fun Run is all set for 11th October 2015

The event centre is held at Henderson Park, and 2015 welcomes the introduction of a new course that provides new challenges, experiences and picturesque landscapes. Making use of some of West Auckland's unique urban path ways, project twin streams and much more - it’s not all on the roadside.

In pursuit of city and national objectives in fitness, health and battle against inactivity and obesity, the Waitakere Half Marathon and fun runs provides something for everyone: a 2km kids fun run, a 5 or 11km walk or run or the challenge of a half marathon. While the half marathoners are very serious(some of them anyway) this is all about community and everyone having a go!

This WESTY Trust event has contributed enormously to the well-being of Waitakere. It started 18 years ago with 237 entrants and has grown into an iconic event attracting more than 600 entries.

A portion of the income from entries is contributed to the North Piha Surf Lifesaving Club for the development of junior lifeguards. The surf club provides the marshals for the run. The balance goes to the WESTY Trust whose aim, is to support and promote talented youth in Waitakere City in respect of their aspirations in sport, education and/or cultural pursuits.
