Are you feeling fit and looking for your next challenge on 29 October?

Join the Mental Health Foundation Auckland Marathon 2017 team – stomping out stigma with every step!


Our Charity Hero entries have closed but you can still run in our team as a "Fundraise as I Run" runner.

When you enter as a Fundraise as I Run runner for the Mental Health Foundation, you purchase your own ticket and there's no fundraising target. You're still part of our MHF team and you'll also receive these benefits: Auckland marathon collage

  • A free Mental Health Foundation t-shirt when you raise over $100.
  • Invitation to our informational morning tea, where you will meet the other runners and learn more about the work of the Mental Health Foundation.
  • You, your friends and family will be invited to post-race refreshments at our marquee.
  • The top 25 fundraisers for the Mental Health Foundation team will receive a thank you gift bag with merchandise from our sponsors.
  • Fundraising support and training tips from the Mental Health Foundation.

Become a Fundraise as I Run runner! There are distances to suit all fitness levels and goals – marathon, half-marathon, 12km traverse, 5km fun run and a kids' marathon.

Dedicate your race to supporting mental health and raise money to help fund our work by becoming a Fundraise as I Run runner. 

You can also make a donation to support somebody taking part in the marathon.
