Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon
30 June 2019
Established in 1986, the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon has been Wellington's favourite footrace for three decades. Based at the famous Westpac Stadium, the fast, flat, scenic route around Wellington's spectacular waterfront creates an occasion for all age and ability. You might even win a trip to the New Caledonia Marathon. With a Full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k and the Kids' Magic Mile, there's something for everyone. 4000 runners and walkers can't all be wrong. But don't take our word for it. Find out for yourself...
Pick Up on race morning is only available for entrants driving from outside greater Wellington on race day (Kapiti, Wairarapa, Manawatu, Wanganui). Those participants can collect their race pack on race morning at Westpac Stadium between 7:00am and 8:30am in the Pavilion Bar. If those participants had included a Stadium parking ticket in their entry, you must contact us at least a week prior to arrange postage of the ticket.
In conjunction with Runner's World Magazine and Wellington Scottish Athletic Club, half marathon participants have the opportunity to achieve a time goal by joining a Pace Team led by experienced runners. Time goals for Pace Teams are listed below. Pace leaders have a flag with their time on it. At Race Pack Pick Up you can also pick up a Pace Band to help you pace yourself. On race day, Pace Teams will assemble by the Heart Foundation stand inside Westpac Stadium from 8:00am, and within their respective time zones on the start line.
