Ports of Auckland Round the Bays is a joint collaboration between Fairfax Media and the Auckland Joggers Club. It has been an annual event in Auckland since 1972, growing to be one of the world’s largest fun-runs with almost 30,000 registered runners.
The scenic 8.4km flat course starts in the city on Quay St and finishes on the waterfront at St Heliers Bay. In the past 10 years, Ports of Auckland Round the Bays has enabled Fairfax Media to donate more than $1.5 million to a number of charitable causes supporting the health, well-being and development of children in Auckland.
Reaching a variety of Aucklanders including families, friends and corporate groups, the event provides a number of channels for brands to maximise their involvement and connect with the crowd.
