The ASB Auckland Marathon course runs from Devonport on Auckland's North Shore, through Takapuna to the Smales Farm Bus Station where it joins the Busway southbound to the Auckland Harbour Bridge. After crossing the Bridge, the course takes in Westhaven Marina, the Viaduct Harbour (the halfway mark), before heading out along Auckland City's waterfront. This section of the course is an out and back, with the turn point being in St Helier's Bay. The return leg follows the same course back to the Viaduct Harbour for a finish at Victoria Park.; The first half of the course is best described as "rolling" while the second half, other than two small road bridges, is flat.

Only official event gear bags can be used at bag drop (i.e. not a sports bag) and must be accompanied by the race number bag tag sticker given at Athlete Check-in. Please ensure your race bag has the race tag sticker attached before you drop it off at the designated bag drop area. Any gear left at the start lines or discarded and left at any point on the course will be collected and donated to Charity. You must NOT drop any gear at aid stations or anywhere on the course for later retrieval.

Your official event gear bag will be transported to the finish line at Victoria Park and will be available for you to collect when you complete your race. Please collect your bag by 1pm Sunday 20th October 2019 before you leave the Event Hub. Any remaining gear will be donated to Charity.
