Harcourts Cooper & Co Run the Point

Hobsonville Point Park


Welcome to Harcourts Cooper & Co Run the Point … your chance to run or walk amongst the amazing new developments and superb trails of Hobsonville Point. If you haven’t yet been out to visit this stunning new development then you’re missing out.

Event distances go from the "main event" 10K Classic, the more achievable 5k Fun Run & Walk and right up to the 15k run. All courses feature the "classic" Hobsonville Point 5km loop which is almost entirely on hard packed trails, boardwalk and concrete utility path. Where we do use the road, you'll be running down the centre line - not on the footpath - as most roads used are closed to traffic. For our junior athletes, the 2k Kids Dash is a thrilling run up and down De Havilland Rd before blasting into the finish line.

We take our finisher medals seriously

The team at Running Events take the task of creating the best finisher medals in New Zealand very seriously. We want every single person who crosses the finish line and smashes their fitness goals to take home a beautiful moment of a great day out and an awesome goal acheived. 
Stay tuned for this year's medal design!
