We fully appreciate that the public transport options aren’t for everyone and the majority of participants will drive to the event. It is important to note that much of the street parking in the centre of Devonport has a one-hour time limit. If you are thinking you might just take your chances on a Sunday morning … Do Not. Auckland Transport have already informed us that traffic wardens will patrol the area on race morning specifically to discourage this. So please, please, don’t give yourself a nasty headache to come back to after the event.
If you are parking, arrive at the venue in plenty of time and expect a 10-15 minute walk from your parking space to the finish line. Try for un-metered street parking on the major roads; King Edward Parade (east of Buchanan St), Queens Parade (west of Anne St) or up on Calliope Rd. You may also find street parking in the residential streets outside of the centre. These words are our best guess only – you are fully responsible for your own decisions. Please be sure to check parking signs and comply with the parking rules posted – or expect a shock when you return to your vehicle.
