Course Map

Half Marathon - 21km

The Half Marathon route starts at Nga Puna Wai. You will spread out around the 400m athletics tack, leaving the stadium after 600m and then follow the construction companies roadway out to the motorway underpass.

 Once through the Underpass you will turn left towards Carrs Basin, running out to the 5km marker then returning to the underpass. Here you will turn left to the pathway on Wigram Road, run along Wigram Road pathway to, Annex Road along Annex Road to the Marylands Cycleway beside the motorway to the turnaround, return to the Underpass on the same route and run then run back out to the original 5km turnaround just past Carrs Basin, then returning to Nga Puna Wai, via the Underpass and construction road.

 Once you enter Nga Puna Wai track you will have 600m to run, this is one and a half laps.  


The 10km runners will start at the same time as the Half Marathon runners and will run out through the underpass and continue toward Carrs Basin and turn at the 5km marker and return on the same route you ran out on. 

If all walkers and runners can keep left this would be greatly appreciated as this will allow all competitors ample room throughout the event on the pathways. We do have some runners from Achilles running with added runners, please give these runners space. 

The pathway has been advertised that it is closed for the event, although some people still chose to ignore these notices so please treat the pathway as open, meaning some cyclist may be on the pathway.  

 KIDZ Dash

This will start after the Half Marathon and 10km runners have left the Stadium. The KIDZ Dash will be 4 laps of the athletics track being 1600 metres.
