Run or Walk in Beautiful Devonport
Race options from 2k to Half Marathon, run or walk.
Sunday, 25th September 2016
Welcome to the Mizuno Devonport Half Marathon – formerly the Devonport Classic. This is your chance to run or walk in Auckland’s most beautiful suburb! Race HQ is in the stunning beach front Windsor Reserve, right in the heart of Devonport Village and a stone’s throw from the ferry terminal. Event distances go from our superb new Half Marathon all the way down to a 2km kids’ dash, so there’s an option to suit everyone and no-one gets left out. All courses embark on a scenic, single-lap tour of this wonderful peninsula.
The Devonport Half Marathon is also Race One of the brand new Garmin Auckland Half Marathon Series, a season long challenge featuring four fantastic events. Accumulate points in the Half Marathon Series, Classic Series or Kids Dash Series leading up to our season finale in April 2017. The Devonport Half Marathon is strategically placed five weeks before the Auckland Marathon, making it a great tune-up for the big day. The special 15k option is the ideal tester for those in the half marathon. For those with more modest ambitions, this is just a great way to discover the beaches, cafes, reserves and historic neighbourhoods of this fabulous area.

Loving the downward treat from North-head into Devonport Village. Nice back-drop. Thanks Running Events for a relaxed but well organised running event.
Enjoyed the Devonport Classic for the first time yesterday, wonderful route to run through such a pretty suburb in Auckland.
Awesome work guys. You deserve a couple of beers! The 15km course was superb, the scenery helped me forget that I’d run 17km to get there!!!
Benji and Sophie-Kate had a blast today – Sophie was thrilled with her PB and 2nd place. Thanks for a great run!
Love your events will be back for more! there are so many events to choose from, we have to go where we get value for money.
