    A Distance for Everyone

    From 2km dash all the way up to 15km ... there's a race option to suit everyone

20th September 2015
Welcome to the 2015 JustWorkout Devonport Classic – a chance to run or walk with history! Race HQ is in the stunning cliff top setting of Fort Takapuna Historic Reserve at Narrow Neck beach. Event distances go right the way from 15km all the way down to a 2km kids’ dash, so there’s an option to suit everyone. All courses embark on a scenic, single-lap tour of Devonport.

The Devonport Classic has been held every every year since 2002 and well over 10,000 people have crossed the finish line during that time. Placed six weeks before the Auckland Marathon, it is the ideal tune-up for the big day. For those with more modest ambitions, this is just a great way to discover the beaches, cafes, reserves and historic neighbourhoods of one of Auckland’s most beautiful suburbs.

2km Dash


Why the Devonport Classic?

The course passes many of Devonport’s great beaches, cafes and seaside restaurants.

Historic Places

New Zealand’s military history is on show at Fort Takapuna, North Head and several navy facilities.

Experienced Management

2014 saw Running Events bring our own spin to the Devonport Classic. Organisers of the Albany Lakes Summer Series and Coatesville Classic, our experienced team knows how to make a first-class event.

Amazing Courses

Last year we redesigned all courses to get the best mix of road running through Devonport’s beautiful streets and trail running in the historic reserves.

Amazing Venue

Fort Takapuna Historic Reserve has a stunning commanding position over Narrow Neck beach, looking out towards Rangitoto.

The perfect 6-week hit-out for the Auckland Marathon

  • I loved the warm up routine before the start of the 15 km run. I loved the route, certainly not a PB course but fantastic and a great variety included in the 15 km, well done! I will definately run it again next year.

    Chris, Takapuna

  • I loved seeing all the different ages, races and size ranges on Sunday. It really says something for the wish to enjoy a little bit of fitness at the same time as having a little bit of fun with either friends and/or family.

    Elaine, Devonport

  • I love the way you have so many entry categories. It caters for everyone. I usually enter the 10K walk but next year will do the 5K walk with my granddaughter in her baby buggy.
