Walking Stars is New Zealand’s first night-time walking half marathon, bringing people from across NZ together to light up Auckland’s vibrant CBD. The walk begins after sun down and takes you on a starlit walk past some of Auckland’s finest landmarks whilst raising vital funds for the cancer research and care services.

Walking Stars is a half marathon that is achievable by everyone! You can choose to power walk, stride or stroll, but no running!

Sign up now and save with the early bird rate, ends 31 July, and experience a half marathon with a starlit difference

The entry fee starts at $49 and includes:
