About the AHMS

Welcome to New Zealand's Biggest Run Series

Well over 10,000 participants will challenge themselves at the 2024/25 Shoe Science Auckland Half Marathon Series ... will you be one?


Introducing AHMS

The Shoe Science Auckland Half Marathon Series (AHMS for short) brings together the five premier half marathon events in Tamaki Makarau into a single, season-long challenge. Points are awarded to all finishers in each race and accumulate towards the Grand Finale on the Auckland waterfront in April. No matter what distance you run or walk  -and no matter where you place - you'll earn points towards the final series standings and let you compare how you did against your peers, or versus previous seasons.

The Grand Slam
The ultimate commitment demands the ultimate reward. For those who complete all five series events - at any distance - the Grand Slam medal is the mark of a season-long goal accomplished. New for the 24/25, the Grand Slam medal will be unique, hefty and supremely collectable. As a further incentive to our most dedicated participants, those who complete all five series events in-person at the half marathon distance will receive their medal with a distinctive colour flourish. Watch this space for the Grand Slam medal reveal on June 1st!
