Mizuno Coatesville Classic in Auckland

The Mizuno Coatesville Classic is an annual half marathon and 8km running and walking event and a kids 2km dash. The rural Coatesville Classic course treats you to spectacular views, from Sky Tower on one side to the Waitakeres on the other, and the road is closed for the event.

So you always wanted to take on the Coatesville Classic but Heartbreak Hill put you off? Now you have no excuse as, new for 2015, there is the 4mk Downhill Dash. The event starts at the half way mark of the 8km Classic near The Prom on Ridge Rd. Buses will transport you from the 8k start line outside the Coatesville Settlers Hall to the muster area in The Prom.

First held in 2010 - and with a respectful nod to its predecessor, the Coatesville Fun Run - the Coatesville Classic has quickly become a highlight on the Auckland road running calendar. The 234 trailblazers who took part in that first event could scarcely imagine that by 2012, their numbers would have swelled to nearly 1600. The 800 plus in the half marathon made it the second largest half marathon in Auckland, behind only the mighty Auckland Marathon.
