Ports of Auckland Round the Bays

Having a working port in a major international city like Auckland is a special responsibility. We are proud and excited to have the opportunity to support Round the Bays, an iconic and hugely popular Auckland event, right on the doorstep of our Waitematā seaport. We have been the naming right sponsor since 2010.

Ports of Auckland Round the Bays has been an annual event in Auckland since 1972 and has grown to be one of the world's largest fun runs, with nearly 40,000 registered runners and an estimated 70,000 participants.

The run is 8.4km long and follows the contours of Auckland's Waitematā Harbour, starting near our port on Quay Street and finishing in St Heliers. The fun run supports a number of charities in our community. In 2015, proceeds benefited the Auckland Down Syndrome Association, The Neonatal Trust, Barnardos, Fairfax First Books, Kenzie’s Gift, Shine, the Waiheke Health Trust and Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust.
