2011 Auckland Half Marathon sold out
2011 adidas Auckland Half Marathon reaches capacity in just two weeks
This year’s adidas Auckland Marathon half marathon has sold out in less than 2 weeks.
Stephen Brown, managing director said the level of interest once again has been unprecedented for a major running event in New Zealand.
“The field limit for the half marathon has reached capacity more than 6 months before race day.
“This year the total half and full marathon field size was increased to 10,500 participants and yet the half marathon event has sold out much earlier than last year,” said Brown. “The full marathon is already over 70 per cent full which also represents a considerably higher entry rate this year.
“We are delighted with this number of entrants in the marathon distance cementing it as easily New Zealand’s largest full marathon event,” added Brown.
Up to this morning over 2400 entries have been received for the full marathon.
Entries are still available in the quarter marathon, 5km run and walk and KIDSMARATHON events that feature as part of the adidas Auckland Marathon.
The event takes place on Sunday 30 October 2011.
