About the Mizuno Coatesville Half Marathon

Stunning rural running on Auckland’s doorstep.

Welcome to the Mizuno 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 15 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 what is widely accepted to be the finest finisher medal in New Zealand running. Each year the Coatesville Half Marathon finisher medal features a member of the local flaura and fauna and the 2019 medal is graced by the colourful Monarch butterfly. A suitable reward for taking on the challenging course and distances offered.

The Coatesville Half Marathon is Race Three of the Mizuno 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.

We’d love to hear from you, but first …
… we’ve listed the five questions we get asked most often in the list below. You can save yourself (and us!) a whole heap of time by checking these Questions and Answers to see if this might answer your query. There’s a good chance this will nail it and you’ll be all set!

Your tiktok dashboard allows you to make a variety of changes to your registration without even needing to ask us. How good is that? From within tiktok you can update your contact details, upgrade or downgrade your race selection or transfer your entry to another person. You can also add additional items like t-shirts and iTabs to your registration and pay the extra online. Just click on the LOGIN  link in the menu and log in using the email address and password that you set up during registration. On the left-side menu click on the ‘My Registrations’ option and you will be able to see all your current registrations. Select the one you wish to change and there will be a ‘Make Changes’ button on the following page with a range of options for altering your registration.

Important! tiktok Dashboard will launch soon. In the meantime, please use the contact form to request a change to your registration.

Running Events offer a 50% refund of the entry fee paid to anyone who is unable to take part in one of our events for medical reasons (or a 75% refund in the case of a Series Pass entry). Notification of your intent to withdraw must be made at least one calendar month prior to the event (in the case of a “Series Pass” entry – this must be one month prior to the first event in the series) using the online contact form on the event web site. Unfortunately, we do not offer deferral of race entries to future events under any circumstances.

Full details on our Refund & Transfer policy can be found here.

Important: Please DO NOT ASK for an exception – you are wasting your time and ours. In fairness to all participants, we do not make exceptions to these rules under any circumstances.

Everyone registered in the event more than 4 weeks out from race day can expect to receive their race number (with timing tag attached to the back) 2-3 weeks prior to the event.

Those who registered after this time will need to collect their race number from the venue during race weekend. Check the Info section of the web site for dates, times and locations for Race Packet Pickup.

If you ordered any merchandise, it will be available for collection on race morning from the Merchandise tent.

Our new timing tags are small stickers that can be found on the back of your bib.  The tag sends out a unique UHF signal that identifies the athlete and records the exact time at which the athlete passes the detection mats. The tags are designed to withstand rain and sweat as the mechanical part of the tag is covered by a foam spacer but please don’t fold or bend the bib as this can damage it.  All you need to do is make sure you have your bib attached to the front of your shirt and you’re good to go.

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.
