    This race was great from the packet pickup to the finish line. There was one part towards the end where (part of the road where the stones used to make the beautiful road didn’t feel good under my feet.
    I loved the scenery along the race, crowd support was awesome! The challenge on the bridge was fun to watch, I didn’t participate, the finish line was great as there was a huge screen in the field playing the World Cup game. They were able to still watch and support their rugby team(All Blacks) that sadly lost this year to a South Africa team.Great race, awesome people, will recommend.

    I ran the Auckland Marathon with my wife in 2010 and found it to be a great race. On the morning of the race, you can take the ferry ride across Auckland Harbor to get to the starting line… it’s a fun way to meet other runners and get a nice view of the city skyline before the sun comes up. You then get another great view of the city when you run back to Auckland over the famous Auckland Harbor Bridge. There are many scenic miles along the waterways of Auckland in the latter half of the marathon, and you get to finish in a nice big park in the city center. Weather was perfect the year we ran it, and there were plenty of aid stations along the course. Auckland is a beautiful city and a great home base to start exploring other parts of New Zealand, which we did after the marathon. Overall, I’d definitely recommend it to other runners.
