Maraetai Half Marathon

The GJ Gardner Maraetai Half Marathon course hugs the coastline of this stunning part of the City of Sails and offers unsurpassed views of the vast Waitemata Harbour. Run or walk over boardwalk paths, next to stunning, serene beaches and through two hidden gem Regional Parks for a truly unique event experience.

The event is based in the enormous Te Puru park mid way between Beachlands and Maraetai. Its a 40 minute drive from the centre of Auckland city and with plentiful parking and a beach to cool off on post-race, it couldn’t be better.

The signature half marathon course follows the coast along Maraetai Coast Road, passing the famous Maraetai Wharf and hidden beaches lined with Pohutukawas. A lap around stunning Duders Regional Park does include some modest elevation but, oh boy, the views make it all worthwhile.

Like those in the 21k, those in the 10k will also enjoy a run through Omana Regional Park and the amazing landscaped foreshore of the Omana Esplanade. The finish line is a stone’s throw from the sparkling Waitemata Harbour, where you can cool off in the summer sunshine.

All finishers will receive a beautiful commemorative medal and those in the 21k and 10k will accumulate points towards the season-long, Mizuno Auckland Half Marathon Series.

Distances include:

  • 21km
  • 10km
  • 5km
  • 2km Kids' Dash
