The 15km Hit Out at the Mizuno Half Marathon is a stunning inner-city run designed as the perfect training run for those aspiring to take on the Half Marathon. The course is challenging and constantly varying with plenty of flats, a couple of tough hills, road and trail, foreshore and reserve. Take a tour of the historic seaside suburb as you gear up for the Half Marathon distance.
The 15K Hit Out starts with and follows the exact course of the 10K Classic. Just as your 10K comrades turn into the finish line, you will continue along past the ferry terminal on Queens Parade and up Huia St to Callope Rd. You then follow the path of the 5K Fun Run out towards Stanley Point, turning around 250 metres earlier than the 5k to ensure an exact 15k course.
