Welcome to the 2017 Mizuno Coatesville Half Marathon!
19 March 2017
Running Events and title sponsor Mizuno welcome you to the 2017 edition of Auckland’s most stunning rural road race … the Mizuno Coatesville Half Marathon!
Make a date for Sunday, 19th March 2017 and join us in the beautiful rural village of Coatesville – five minutes north of Albany and only 20 minutes drive from the Harbour Bridge – for the Coatesville Half Marathon. Held on fully closed roads, the race is Auckland’s most scenic half marathon, with an 8k run and walk, new 4k Downhill Dash and the Kristin 2k Kids’ Dash to match!
Get in quick and join 1,500 other runners, walkers and dashers for one of Auckland’s largest running events. The Half Marathon is the third event in the Garmin Auckland Half Marathon Series, taking place a month before the final race, the Orewa Beach Half Marathon.
The Coatesville Half Marathon attracts fast runners, slow walkers and everyone in between. If you enjoy making the most of the summer in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and love to get away from it all just minutes from home – this is the event for you.
