Get ready Auckland, activewear isn’t just for brunch anymore

Dust off your sneakers and get ready to race - New Zealand’s largest fun run and walk, Ports of Auckland Round the Bays, is back for 2019.


On Sunday the 3rd of March, Tāmaki Makaurau’s picturesque Waitematā Harbour will be a rainbow of lycra as more than 26,000 people tackle the 8.4km course. Event-goers will be treated to entertainment every 600m keeping runners amped with live music, comedians, cheerleaders and more. With the ambitious goal for Round the Bays to become a zero-waste event, the March 2019 run has a solid benchmark to beat - in 2018 a massive 67 per cent of the waste generated was recycled or reused.

All ticket sales go towards the event’s three deserving charity partners, Sea Cleaners Trust, Diabetes NZ Auckland branch and Big Buddy Mentoring Trust, with each receiving a share of $60,000 in cash donations for their cause and a $20,000 Stuff media package.
