Round the Bays

Community Organisation

Ports of Auckland Round the Bays is New Zealand’s largest fun run, boasting over 29,000 participants each year - and growing! Our home is the vibrant city of Auckland, with our 8.4km course following the city’s picturesque coastline.

An iconic New Zealand event that you need to tick off your bucketlist. We bring people from different cultures, workplaces and abilities together in one spectacular mass of colour and pride. If you’re a bonding workplace, a fundraising guru, a pram pusher or taking your first steps towards getting active - this event is for you! 

With 47 years under our belt we know how to do fun. If the 18 entertainment acts aren’t enough to get your endorphins pumping then maybe joining one of the 1,300 colour clad, costume wearing teams will be - as we know all things are better done together! 

Whether you’re joining us for the 1st or 31st time, to run for a cause, to smash your fitness goals or to just be a part of New Zealand’s largest fun run, you’ll leave having experienced one unforgettable day.
