About the Event

Te Hāora I The Hour is a new event in the Auckland winter running calendar. Get your team of four together and be part of this unique format relay against the clock. 

Part of the Athletics Auckland Senior Winter League. Merit prizes, spot prizes, league points and a prize for the fastest lap on the day are all up for grabs.

The location

Held at the iconic and much-loved Lovelock Track, home of running legends and world record relays!  In the central suburb of Sandringham, it's easily to get to (active transport encouraged!) and promises a fast, flat course that's truly multi-surface - track, path and grass. Read more about the course.

The vibe

Lots to keep you entertained before, between and after your laps:

🎤 live commentary

🎧 a DJ playing your faves

🥟 food from our diverse Sandringham community

📺 a live scoreboard  

🔀 plenty of changeover action

Race format

Laps are 1.46km. The first runner of each team starts at 2pm, and after completing a lap, passes the baton to the next runner in the team. And so on, until an hour is up. The goal is to complete as many laps as possible.

When the one hour hooter goes, finish the lap you are on. Number of laps plus finish times will determine the final placings.


Spot prizes are handed out at end of laps and there are merit prizes on offer for the fastest laps of the Te Hāora Strava segment on the day.
