About the Coatesville Half Marathon

Stunning rural running on Auckland’s doorstep.

Welcome to the Coatesville Half Marathon. The peaceful rural village of Coatesville, on the fringe of New Zealand’s largest city, is a tranquil oasis from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. Only 20 minutes north of the Harbour Bridge, you can enjoy the very best of New Zealand’s rural scenery on a traffic free course that offers stunning views all the way back to Sky Tower.

Event distances go from the superb, single lap, Half Marathon all the way down to a 2km kids’ dash, so there’s an option to suit everyone and no-one gets left out. All courses feature beautiful rural scenery on closed roads.

All finishers receive a beautiful finisher medal. A suitable reward for taking on the challenging course and distances offered.

The Coatesville Half Marathon is Race Three of the Shoe Science Auckland Half Marathon Series, a season-long challenge featuring five awesome events at five stunning locations. Accumulate points in the Half Marathon or Classic Series leading up to our season finale in April.

Half Marathon

The Coatesville Half Marathon course combines the 8km “classic” loop with a 13km out-and-back section along Ridge Road. The entire course is closed to traffic making for a true (and very rare) running experience – the Coatesville Half Marathon is a road race, not a footpath fun run. The course has rolling hills – including our very own “Heartbreak Hill” as you run past Dotcom Mansion, flat sections and a long downhill run into the finish.
Important! The half marathon course has been officially measured by an AIMS approved course measurer.

8K Classic

The 8k Classic course has been a staple of local running for many years and was the course used for the original “Coatesville Fun Run” for almost twenty years from the late 80s. The official classic 8k differs only from the traditional “block run” with the addition of a short out-and-back section in Donaldson Drive to make the course an accurate 8k (what US and UK runners would refer to as a “five miler”).
Important! The 8K Classic course has been officially measured by an AIMS approved course measurer.

So you always wanted to take on the Coatesville Half Marathon but Heartbreak Hill put you off? Now you have no excuse! The course for the 4k is almost entirely flat with a blast up closed Mahoenui Valley Rd to Dotcom Mansion, turn around and burn all the way back to the finish line!

Our MyLaps disposable timing tags are small stickers that can be found on the back of your race number.  The tag sends out a unique UHF signal that identifies you and records the exact time at which you passed the detection mats. The tags are designed to withstand rain, sweat and normal wear-and-tear – but please don’t fold or bend the bib as this can damage it.  All you need to do to make sure your result is properly recorded is to wear your race number on the front of your shirt throughout the event. The tag is disposable – you do not need to return it after the event.

Important! Keep hold of your race number after you finish. You will need it to register for the prize draw at the Awards Ceremony. Listen out for announcements.

Of course! We love walkers and all of our events are open to runners, joggers and walkers alike. Many of our events offer specific merit prizes, start times and rules for competitive walkers. Please check the event web site and you will find this information on the “Walkers” tab.
