Sunday Pack Runs...


The revised 7 week build-up to the Auckland Marathon (now on Sunday January 23 2022) starts on Sunday 05 December at 7am.

Everyone is welcome to come and join us while training for whatever your next event maybe.

The Auckland YMCA Marathon Club have packs of like minded people to suit most pace groups for those long runs or walks.  

We run & walk every Sunday morning at the times below. It pays to arrive 15 minutes early to get a park and get changed. We have great showers so bring a towel for after the run and enjoy a tea/coffee & muffin with fellow members.

The current club programme is run every Sunday unless noted below.

  • 6.00 am - Walkers
  • 7:00 am - Runners. 

Note: We will run at 7:00 am from December this year (6:00am walkers) until the week before the Auckland Marathon in January 2022, and at 8:00 am again after the Rotorua Marathon until Christmas (7:00am for the walkers from August 15 until Auckland Marathon).
