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! 

Mix it up - You need some excitement in your plan and group sessions to look forward too. Join our ASICS Move Club sessions, which will be ASB Auckland Marathon specific. 

Full Support - The Auckland YMCA Marathon club have been getting runners ready for ASB Auckland Marathon since ages ago. Join the club and run with the group every single Sunday leading up to race day to slowly and consistently build your endurance.
