Fitbit Family 5km Course Change

30 July 2019
Fitbit Family 5km Course Change

We have some important news to share with you regarding the Fitbit Family 5km.

Due to the growth in demand for this distance (which is fantastic to see), we have outgrown our previous start area on Tamaki Drive and have needed to find a new start line location that could accommodate more people. This has also provided the opportunity to address feedback from runners that their experience would be improved with a start line that was easier to get to.

With this in mind, we're excited to announce Wynyard Quarter, a beautiful iconic Auckland waterfront location will be the start line for the Fitbit Family 5km in 2019. 

Please note your start time is now 10:45am (previously 10:00am) to ensure plenty of space for all runners on the course.

You will begin your race overlooking Viaduct Harbour and the spectacular Auckland City backdrop before heading out on the ASB Marathon course through the CBD, turning around on Quay Street and heading back to finish in Victoria Park. 

Start time: 10:45am 
Start line:  Karanga Plaza, Wynyard Quarter
Finish line: Victoria Park
Best parking:  AT Downtown Carpark. From here you can walk through Viaduct Harbour to the start line (approx. 10min walk). 

If you have already pre-purchased a transport ticket to the start line, this will automatically be refunded to the card you paid with and you don't need to do anything. 

Our team is looking forward to delivering an incredible race day experience for you on Sunday 20 October.
