Auckland Marathon 2020

Auckland Marathon 2020

During lockdown did you:

  • go for regular walks or runs? Do you want to keep your motivation going now we've returned to normal(ish) life and it's so much colder?, or
  • put on a few lockdown kilos due to spending all that time at home, or eating all the baking your family did? Looking for motivation to work off the extra kilos?

We can help you with that.

Join Team Shine for this year’s Auckland Marathon on Sunday 1st November and raise funds to support victims of domestic violence. Run or walk 12km, 21km or 42km.

Set up an online fundraising page. Be part of the solution and help victims of domestic violence get safe and stay safe.

Shine's Community Fundraiser Carol Herbert signed up to Team Shine for the 2019 Auckland Marathon, to walk the half-marathon distance of 21km.

"Joining Team Shine was definitely a motivator as I wanted to use the opportunity to make a difference in my community. It motivated me to fundraise and also to train so I didn’t let down family and friends who donated to my Shine cause. It was amazing walking over the Auckland Harbour Bridge and crossing that finish line was a huge achievement. I would encourage you to give it a go this year."

Please contact Carol if you have any questions or would love to sign up. Email

“"When I got to the Shine refuge with my boys, I felt an enormous weight lift off me. I realised how much anxiety and fear I had been carrying around for so long. Shine helped me get a Protection Order and Parenting Order against S. Within days, I began sleeping and eating normally again." ”
