We want this event to be huge and we want it to be enjoyable. One of the major obstacles we face is the ability to provide enough parking to allow participants to access the event without disrupting local residents. To answer this challenge, we are proposing to offer a shuttle bus service from some points around Auckland where you will find it easy to park your vehicle on a Sunday morning. By taking the shuttle bus, you are guaranteed to arrive at the race site in plenty of time for your event start, with the minimum of fuss and stress.
Important! Your electronic bus ticket will be sent out to your registered email address during race week. Print it out or have it available on your mobile device for scanning at the bus pickup point.
Locations & Times
We are currently accepting registrations for two separate pickup/drop off locations. Coaches will operate to/from Britomart and – if demand warrants it – to/from the North Shore (stopping at Albany and Smales Farm bus stations). The early bus will arrive at the race site in plenty of time for the Half Marathon start and the later bus will cater for all other events. An exact schedule will be published closer to the event.
A return bus service will operate to return you to your pick up point. All buses will depart Mission Bay as soon as possible after the conclusion of the Awards Ceremony at approximately 11am. Additionally, where possible, earlier shuttle services will operate between 9:30am and 10:30am. The exact departure times and drop-off locations for these services will be confirmed closer to the event. However, please be aware that earlier departures are not guaranteed. If you are booking a place on the shuttles, be prepared to remain at the race site until the conclusion of the Awards Ceremony.
