Round the Bays NZ’s largest fun run is back for 2020!
What’s your 2020 vision? Keen to tick off a feel-good event that gets you outdoors and showcases some of the most beautiful views in Auckland? Entries are now open for the 2020 Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fun run on Sunday 8 March 2020.
Even if you’re unlikely to be among the first to cross the finish line, you can still be a winner by being one of the first to sign up for this must-do event.
Supersaver entries are now available until midnight on 1 December 2019:
– Children under 5 years old $5
– Children (5 to 15 years old) $15
– Adults $25
All event entries include a finisher’s medal, and free transport between the finish and start lines.
Now in its 48th year, thousands of people come back year after year to pound the pavements over the 8.4km picturesque course that takes in some of Auckland’s most-sought-after views, from the Auckland CBD to St Heliers Bay. Every one who completes the course receives a finisher’s medal.
For most of the 29,000 participants, the challenge comes in setting themselves fundraising targets. Last year’s event generated more than $160,000 for more than 30 charities. This year there are four official partners:
Abilities Incorporated, enriching the lives of people living with disabilities by securing meaningful work in commercial sectors
John Walker Find Your Field of Dreams Foundation, providing accessible sports and recreation experiences to young people that promote character development and good health
Refugees as Survivors New Zealand, a mental health and wellbeing service for people from refugee backgrounds living in Aotearoa
Youthline Auckland, giving counselling, mentoring and training support and programmes to young people when they need it
Ports of Auckland’s CEO Tony Gibson says: “Ports of Auckland Round the Bays is a fun event with a strong heritage. It attracts a diverse group of people – and helps a diverse group of people too. Ports of Auckland is proud to be associated with an event that brings our harbourside to life in such a vibrant way.”
