Three Ways To Train

We've got you covered when it comes to training options, so there is no excuse not to be at your best when race day arrives! 


Rolling solo - If you prefer to quietly go about your training on your own, download a FREE training plan and start ticking your sessions off every week. Or, you could convince your mates to enter and follow the plan together! 

With others – Try out our new and exciting Auckland Marathon Run the City Run club. This commences on the 26th of July and will run every Wednesday at 6am from Barfoot and Thompson Wynyard quarter, running either a 5km or 10km group jog. Check out the table below for more details.

Full Support - GetRunning has been getting runners ready for the Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Marathon for 15 years now. With Run Club training options every morning of the week, including a Saturday long run, or having one of their very experienced coaches take you right up to the event with personalised coaching, you can even mix them up! Book in with GetRunning for a personalised Auckland Marathon Coaching Program and receive 20% discount...
