The distances are; 2km for kids, 8km, 16km, 24km & 32km. The course is a 8km loop over a mainly flat course, it has a few minor rollers but generally this will be a fast course. 60% of the course is on the road/footpath with 40% on light gravel and grass. We have chosen this mix specifically to help people as the ideal, safe, hit out 4 Weeks pre ASB Auckland Marathon & Half Marathon Events
Important Course Information
You are required to run on the footpath, not the road unless directed by a Marshal, as roads are open to normal traffic. Please remember the road rules, and be aware of your safety and what is happening around you. Please do not cross the road at any points unless part of the marked course. A marshal will be at each of these points to assist you. Please obey them. Be aware of pedestrians and cars backing out of driveways at all times. All tracks will be marked with arrows attached.
Depending on what event you are competing in, depends how many laps you will be required to do. (Between 1 & 4) Please be aware that when starting your next lap you will be running past the finish line down a chute, on either the left or right (depending on the event). 100m from the finish line you will be able to choose to run down the ‘next lap chute’ or the ‘finish line chute’ there will be a sign with arrows.
