The iconic fun run along Auckland’s waterfront is New Zealand’s largest mass participation sporting event, attracting more than 26,000 participants annually. This year, the event will be held on March 3, 2019.

Subaru of New Zealand's Marketing Manager Daile Stephens is excited about the partnership and says there are obvious synergies between this event and Subaru.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with one of the world's largest fun runs. The spirit of Subaru is ‘do’ and it summarises our desire to see Kiwi families get out and enjoy all the adventures our country has to offer, enabled by our All-Wheel Drive vehicles. We see the Ports of Auckland Round the Bays as a fun, family-friendly event for people to get involved in and to train for in the New Year. Whether you’re new to running or returning to exercise, looking to improve on your current running capability, or want to get your kids more active, this event is ideal for runners or walkers of all abilities. The appeal of the event is how accessible it is, and it encourages everyone to be active, regardless of their level of fitness,” Mrs Stephens says.

Subaru brand ambassadors, Art Green and Matilda Rice will be running for Team Subaru and will be there to meet and greet people on the Subaru stand at the finish line after the event in Vellenoweth Green, St Heliers. Subaru will also have their latest line-up of Subaru SUVs on display for participants to check out at their leisure over the day.

The Ports of Auckland Round the Bays fun run is now in its 47th year and involves an 8.4km flat course from the Auckland CBD to St Heliers Bay. The start is located at Quay Street and the course continues along Auckland’s Waitemata Harbour to a spectacular finish along St Heliers Bay.
