Auckland Transport

Inner city dash

Duration: approximately 30 minutes | Distance: 4.5 kilometres

This run is ideal for people working in the city who need to let off some steam at lunchtime. This run takes you through two of Auckland’s most popular parks - Auckland Domain and Albert Park.

The War Memorial Museum is a focal point of Auckland Domain, overlooking the reserve’s 74 hectares from its position on the hill.

From here you run along Grafton Bridge past the Symonds Street Cemetery and along a short section of Karangahape Road to St Kevins Arcade. Then it is a quick sprint down Myers Park towards the Town Hall and Aotea Square and up to the formal and colourful gardens of Albert Park along Mayoral Drive.

The run continues up Centennial Walk - a footpath alongside a wide grass verge, originally intended to be the main road into Auckland Domain.
