Spend your weekend on the beach!

With race options from 2km to 21km and everything in between.

Welcome to the beautiful sandy haven of Orewa Beach, the venue for race three of the Mizuno Auckland Half Marathon Series. Title sponsor Platinum Homes and Running Events have joined up to present the Platinum Homes Orewa Beach Marathon, a beautiful, scenic tour around Orewa and the surrounding suburbs.
With a Half Marathon, 10km Classic, 5km Fun Run and the Running Events specialty, a 2km Kids’ Dash, there’s an option for everyone to experience summer on the beach.
Starting and finishing on Orewa Beach the course sends you through the pretty Eaves Bush track followed by a run through Kensington Park Villas down some local roads to Orewa’s new cycle/walkway and over to Silverdale and Millwater Estate. It really does have every different surface and something new to look at the entire time.
What are you waiting for? Book in your summer Sunday on the beach.
