Run or Walk in Beautiful Devonport
Race options from 2k to 25k for the ultimate marathon training workout.
20th September 2015
Welcome to the 2015 Mizuno Devonport Classic – a chance to run or walk in Auckland’s most beautiful suburb! Race HQ is in the stunning beach front Windsor Reserve, right in the heart of Devonport Village and a stone’s throw from the ferry terminal. Event distances go from our superb new 25km “Peninsula Run” all the way down to a 2km kids’ dash, so there’s an option to suit everyone. All courses embark on a scenic, single-lap tour of this wonderful peninsula.
The Devonport Classic has been held every year since 2002 and well over 10,000 people have crossed the finish line during that time to complete their own personal challenge. Placed six weeks before the Auckland Marathon, it is the ideal tune-up for the big day with the 25k a great extender for marathoners and the 15k the ideal tester for those in the half marathon. For those with more modest ambitions, this is just a great way to discover the beaches, cafes, reserves and historic neighbourhoods of this fabulous area.
