NZ's largest fun run goes virtual! Join us for the first-ever Ports of Auckland Round the Backyard - it’s a way for us all to band together while keeping safe in our own backyards.
You can walk, jog or run your own 8.4km course wherever you want - whether it be in your own backyard, neighbourhood or a nearby park.
There will be live leaderboards, an interactive course map and participant places in real-time, so you can have healthy rivalry between friends – all via a handy app!

It's been heartwarming to hear stories from across the North Island of people taking others into their home and sharing a cup of tea together or fixing them a meal.
For the latest official updates:
My colleague Jo is writing a story about buying by tender, specifically, the new trend of writing letters to the vendor to explain why they should pick your offer over all the rest.
As the market gets harder and harder to break into, we've been hearing more and more about people trying to make a personal connection with vendors to give their tender offers the edge. We've heard folks will include personal details about their family, why the love the house and what their plans for the property are.
Jo would love to talk to anyone who's written a letter like this to accompany a tender - perhaps it's you, perhaps a relative or friend - or from vendors who've received letters like this, accompanying a tender.
Perhaps you asked for such letters?
We'd love to hear more about that experience for you and how it shaped the way the sale went.
You can reach out to jo here (she'll be joining the Neighbourly neighbourhood soon!) or via our email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories.
