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 water-front 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!

Spectator Friendly:
The Waterfront Half Marathon aims to be the most spectator friendly event in the country. Those taking on the 21K will pass the race site three times on their way to the finish line, so there’s no shortage of opportunities for cheers and encouragement. Anxious friends and relatives will be able to follow your progress in unprecedented detail, meaning they can enjoy the Mission Bay’s cafes, beach and play area without missing any of the action.

Event App & Timing:
The Auckland Waterfront Half Marathon will feature the most advanced timing operation ever attempted in New Zealand. Timing points will be placed at every kilometer mark along the route to provide unprecedented athlete tracking. In partnership with our friends at Timing Sports, your MyLaps bib tag will upload your kilometre splits in real-time to the Event App. Supporters at the event – and friends right around the world – can cheer you on every step of the way. Make sure to upload your pre- and post-race selfies through the app and let your friends join in the excitement.

It promises to be an amazing event… we hope you can join us.
