About Run Albany

The final race of the North Shore Run Series is at Albany Lakes Civic Park

Welcome to Harcourts Cooper & Co Run Albany … your chance to run or walk on closed roads around stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park and North Harbour Stadium. Formerly the Albany Lakes Summer Series, Run Albany is a reboot of an old favourite and the Grand Finale of the Harcourts Cooper & Co North Shore Run Series. The course is mostly flat and very fast and distance options are 5k, 10k or 15k for runners and 5k or 10k for walkers. A shorter 2km course is available for the kids. Every finisher of Run Albany receives a beautiful commemorative finisher medal. 

Albany Lakes Civic Park
Event base is stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park, a beautiful and tranquil oasis in the heart of Albany’s bustling retail sector. Entrance to the park is directly opposite the main plaza of Westfield Albany. The entrance is the perfect spot to view the two water catchment lakes, bisected by the centrepiece of the park, the Art Bridge – a feature of all race distances.

North Shore Run Series Grand Finale
Run Albany is the Grand Finale of the North Shore Run Series and includes a special presentation for our “Shore Legends” – those who have completed five full North Shore Run Series (or Albany Lakes Summer Series). The “drive for five” will see you called up onto stage with other inductees to receive a beautiful commemorative trophy. Your name, legend number and group photo will also feature on the North Shore Run Series web site. What an achievement!

  • If you registered for an Auckland Half Marathon Series Pass at least 28 days prior to the Devonport Half Marathon, all of your race numbers (for all of the series events) and other materials will be sent to you by courier. You can expect to receive this approximately 7-10 days prior to the Devonport event. If you registered within the final 28 days prior to the Devonport Half Marathon, your race numbers and other materials will be available to collect from the Registration Tent at the Devonport event venue during the pre-race or race-morning registration sessions. See the event web site INFO section for details.

You can expect to receive them approximately 7-10 days prior to the first race of the series.

Our MyLaps disposable timing tags are small stickers that can be found on the back of your race number.  The tag sends out a unique UHF signal that identifies you and records the exact time at which you passed the detection mats. The tags are designed to withstand rain, sweat and normal wear-and-tear – but please don’t fold or bend the bib as this can damage it.  All you need to do to make sure your result is properly recorded is to wear your race number on the front of your shirt throughout the event. The tag is disposable – you do not need to return it after the event.

Important! Keep hold of your race number after you finish. You will need it to register for the prize draw at the Awards Ceremony. Listen out for announcements.

Of course! We love walkers and all of our events are open to runners, joggers and walkers alike. Many of our events offer specific merit prizes, start times and rules for competitive walkers. Please check the event web site and you will find this information on the “Walkers” tab.
