Organisers of the ASB Auckland Marathon have confirmed that the event will not be taking place as planned on 31 October, NZ Herald reveals, rescheduling to Sunday 23 January 2022. Race Director Sam Ellis thanked all involved in moving the event. “It’s no easy feat to move an event the size of the ASB Auckland Marathon,” said Ellis. “This year we’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of the ASB Auckland Marathon, and while it will now be a few months later than originally planned it’s great that we can still mark the occasion and welcome thousands of runners back to the streets of Auckland.”
