Run the City & Change Kiwi Kids’ Lives
Auckland Marathon
30 October 2022

A great opportunity to join in New Zealand’s biggest, most iconic, colourful, cultural running celebration.

Why not take on the Marathon (run only), Half Marathon or the 11km Traverse (run or walk) where you have one of the few opportunities to cross over the Auckland Harbour Bridge on foot?  Or if you are looking for something shorter, there are the Family 5km and Kids Marathon events.

Make the Auckland Marathon even more momentous by raising funds to give Kiwi kids living in poverty the basic essentials and the same opportunities as their peers.  How?

Create your own Auckland Marathon fundraising page, set your target, then let all your friends, family and colleagues know the difference their donations will make to the 1 in 5 Kiwi Kids who are falling behind.  We will support you with your fundraising every step of the way.

There are great prizes to be won - when you raise:

  • $250, you’ll get a free Variety t-shirt
  • $750, you’ll go into the draw to win one of 5 pairs of ASICS trainers
  • $1,500, we will refund your Auckland Marathon entry fee         

Your support will ensure that children and young people can receive the essentials they need to go to school, stay healthy and take part in their community.  The more you raise, the more children you can help.
