The Challenge: A half marathon!
Join us under the stars for a night to remember starting and finishing in Auckland Domain.

The Pink Star Walk will be like no other so dig out your pinkest and brightest outfit and join thousands of people across the country as we get fit, increase awareness of breast cancer and raise money to support NZ women.

The half marathon is strictly over 18’s only so if you’d like to get the family involved we’ve included a 5km option which stays within The Auckland Domain. This year we have also included a 10km option for those who want something in between!

The cost of your ticket covers the cost of the walk, and a small donation; in order to make a real difference we’re asking all walkers to consider going the extra mile and fundraising. We need YOU to be a STAR! Don’t worry, it’s super easy to fundraise and you’ll be guided through the process at the end of your registration.

If you raise just $250 we can fund three counselling sessions for two women recovering from or living with breast cancer.

What does my entry fee cover?

  • A walker number (your ticket to the event)
  • Entertainment after the walk
  • Water stations (although we do recommend you bring your own too)
  • Online fundraising page and fundraising tips
  • Training plan (for half marathon only)
  • A finishers medal (for half marathon only)
  • Memories to treasure forever!
