Each year, thousands of sick, abused and abandoned animals need our help. Do you want to help us rescue these animals in need and provide them the shelter, love and care they deserve?

Join Team SPCA for the iconic Auckland Marathon, Half-Marathon or 12km Traverse and you'll be 'saving lives with every step'!

There are two ways you can support the animals with your Auckland Marathon participation, as a Charity Hero runner, or by purchasing your own place in the event.


Charity Hero

This is by far the best way to get involved and make a difference for animals in need. As a Charity Hero, you pledge to raise a minimum of $1200, and in turn receive:

  • Free entry into your chosen race
  • An exclusive event at the SPCA village with a chance to meet some of our puppies and kittens
  • A personalised SPCA runners singlet 
  • Free VIP transport (ferry or coach) to the race start location
  • An official Charity Runner medal when you have finished the race
  • A post-race celebration tent with plenty of dogs to cuddle at Victoria Park
  • A free barista made coffee or tea at the end of the race
  • Support during the race from our SPCA Cheer Squad
  • Custom training guide and tips
  • An SPCA Auckland goodie bag with treats for both you and a furry friend
  • Fundraising support from Team SPCA fundraisers
  • Prizes and Incentives for our top and most creative fundraisers
  • ASB Marathon runners pack


Places are limited and these runners can be in any race distance. The $1200 fundraising target is compulsory to be able to receive your entry for free. Team SPCA fundraisers will be on hand throughout your journey to support you reaching this target! 


To register your interest, please will in the form below. We will review your application and let you know if you are successful.


Fill out my online form.
The easy to use Wufoo form builder helps you make forms easy, fast, and fun.



Note: we will support you the entire way to reaching your goal! If however you are still shy by November 12th, we do ask you to please top it up to make the minimum $1200. 


Own Place

If you don't think you can raise $1200, not a problem!! You can still register to run as an own place runner. Own place runners do not receive their registrations for free and there is no minimum fundraising target. However you will still receive support from our dedicated SPCA fundraising team, as well as post-race activities on the day! 


To get started as an Own Place Runner, simply:

1. Register for the Auckland Marathon and select SPCA as your charity of choice

2. Create your fundraising page and start collecting donations

If you change your mind and want to be a charity hero runner later, this is something we can discuss with you!
