Run for charity
Why not run one of our great events and raise money for charity at the same time?
There are two ways that you can raise money for your favourite charity.
If you already have your own entry you can choose to support one of the charities that are looking for fundraisers. To see the list of great charities that you could fundraise for, simply check out the charity listings and make an enquiry to the organisation you'd be interested in supporting. They’ll get back to you with all the information you need to join their team, and let you know about the great perks you’ll receive as a charity runner.
You can sign up for one of our 'Golden Charity Entries'. These are very limited special entries in both the half and full marathon allocated to a small number of carefully selected charities. If you sign up for one of these places for the 2014 event you'll need to raise a pre-agreed amount of money for the charity that you run for. This will be set by the individual charities, but will be around $1500 for the half marathon and $2000 for the full marathon. On race day you will wear a special gold bib, which will mark you out as one of a select group of runners pioneering our focus on charity fundraising.*
* The Golden Charity Programme is now closed for 2014. Applications for next year’s Golden Charity Programme will open on November 2nd 2014.
We have big plans to make the 2015 ASB Auckland Marathon Charity Programme better than ever before, so watch this space for more information on how you can get involved. If you work for a charity and would like to become a Golden Charity for the 2015 Auckland Marathon, please email for more information.
