Event Information

  • Where: Auckland
  • Presenter: The Run & Walk Event Series

We are very excited to announce Starship Foundation has been named charity partner of the Run & Walk Event Series, which is the official lead up series to the 2016 ASB Auckland Marathon.

If you're looking for a way to perfect your technique and get a taste of that race day atmosphere, look no further! The Run & Walk Events Series is a sequence of events set three weeks apart, with increasing distances designed to fit perfectly with your training regime. Practice your pacing by being officially timed per lap, and monitor your hydration with Powerade drink stations at regular intervals.

Online spots are now open for both series entries and individual event entries, and as a valued member of Team Starship you can secure your place for 30% off! For more information on this exclusive deal, and to get your discount code, please contact Krissy Garnham at  kgarnham@adhb.govt.nz  or 09 307 8949.

These events are also a great opportunity for you to kick your fundraising up a gear! Why not ask your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you for each lap you complete in the series and put your results up on your Fundraise Online page? As an incentive for support, you can even ask people to guess your average lap time when making a donation, and offer a prize (a homemade cake perhaps?) for the person with the closest guess! When your lovely supporters see how much hard work you are putting into your fundraising and training, the more excited they will be to support you in your fundraising for Starship's children and families.

So what are you waiting for! With five great courses in and around Auckland and a choice of distance at each event to suit runners and walkers of all abilities, grab your spot and take your Auckland Marathon training to the next level alongside your fellow Team Starship members.

For more information please get in touch with Krissy Garnham at  kgarnham@adhb.govt.nz  or 09 307 8949.
