Participants can transfer their race entry to someone else up until midnight Friday 13th October 2017. No transfers will be accepted after this date.

Note: It is not permitted to transfer your race entry to someone else other than through this process, including on Race Day. It is very important for health and safety reasons for us to know the correct identity of every athlete on course, and accordingly it is strictly prohibited to race under another person's race bib. Any athletes caught doing this will be disqualified and may be prevented from entering future events.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged to the withdrawing athlete.
  • It is not possible to transfer your entry to someone else to a different distance event (i.e. Full Marathon to Half Marathon).
  • All shuttle bus and ferry tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.  The person purchasing the transferred entry will need to purchase new transport tickets at the time of the online transfer.
  • To transfer an entry to someone else the initial registrant goes to and logs in using their account, finds the registration they wish to transfer and clicks the link ‘Transfer the registration to another athlete’, and then follows the necessary steps. Please note: the receiving athlete will need to pay for the entry fee in order for the transfer to process, then the original athlete will be refunded their entry fee less the $25.00 transfer fee. 


Participants can request to transfer their entry between different race distances until registrations close or until the race is sold out. Once the race distance is sold out and entries have closed to that event, no transfers will be accepted.

Conditions of transfer:

  • A transfer fee of $25.00 will be charged for all transfers between race distances.
  • If you decide to upgrade your event to a longer distance and space is available, you will need to pay the difference in entry fees.
  • If you decide to downgrade your event to a shorter distance event and space is available, unfortunately we are not able to refund the difference in entry fees.

Please contact us directly with your query or group booking requirement on and we will get in touch, establish your needs and provide you with all you need to get entered!

Travel or Running Groups

We expect the 2017 ASB Auckland Marathon demand for entries to be high. To ensure your group doesn’t miss out, travel companies and running groups can pre-purchase group allotments. The minimum group allotment is 20 entries across the Full Marathon and Half Marathon events. You can also pre-purchase event bus and ferry transport.

We will invoice you for the requested group number and payment is required 14 days from invoice date. Once payment is made we will provide instructions on your group entry process. Your participants will be required to complete their own entry into the system using a unique code which we will issue you with and to ensure they each can sign and acknowledge the athlete waiver.
