Welcome to the Harcourts Cooper & Co Devonport Half Marathon. This is your chance to run or walk among heritage streets, past fabulous beaches and enjoy the stunning views to be had in Auckland’s most beautiful suburb! Race HQ is Windsor Reserve, right in the heart of Devonport Village and looking straight across the Waitemata Harbour towards the Auckland city skyline. The Devonport ferry terminal is a stone’s throw away and Devonport’s many cafes and eateries are right across the road from the finish line.
Event distances go from the superb 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, tour of this wonderful peninsula. Extensive road and lane closures ensure the best possible event experience for all participants so why not come and run or walk with over two thousand of your new best mates!
The Harcourts Cooper & Co Devonport Half Marathon is Race One of the Shoe Science Auckland Half Marathon Series, a season-long challenge featuring five awesome events at five stunning locations. Accumulate points in the Half Marathon Series or Classic Series and see how you place overall after the Grand Finale in April. If you have the Auckland Marathon on your play list for this season, you’ll find the Devonport Half Marathon is strategically placed four weeks out, making it the perfect tune-up for the big day.
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.
