Running Events and new title sponsor Mizuno welcome you to the 2016 edition of Auckland's
most stunning rural road race ... the 2016 Mizuno Coatesville Classic!
Make a date for Sunday, 20th March 2016 and join us in the beautiful rural village of Coatesville - five minutes north of Albany and only 15 minutes drive from the Harbour Bridge - for the Coatesville Classic. Held on fully closed roads, the Classic 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!
Enter early and join 2,000 other runners, walkers and dashers for one of Auckland's largest running events. The Classic is fixed for two weeks after the Grand Finale of Running Events' Albany Lakes Summer Series to give you a fantastic opportunity to round off a summer of fitness fun and commit to an excellent end-of-season goal. The Coatesville Classic 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.
