Wellington Marathon

On Sunday 30 June, more than 3,500 enthusiastic participants took part in the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon, with everyone enjoying this year’s favourable weather conditions.

Heart Racers at the Wellington Marathon

Our team of dedicated Heart Racers gave it their all to help raise vital funds for the Heart Foundation, while they ran or walked in the event. As a result of their hard work and effort, they’ve so far raised an amazing $10,300 dollars, towards the fight against heart disease in New Zealand. The funds they’ve raised will go towards supporting heart-related research and specialist training for cardiologists.

Congratulations Team Heart Racer - we’re incredibly proud of your achievement and grateful for all your support.

As well as our Heart Racers, we’d also like to thank the Heart Foundation volunteers who so generously gave up their time to help make the Gazley Volkswagen Wellington Marathon such a success.

The Heart Foundation is very proud to be have been the official charity of the Marathon for the fifteenth year in a row. This unwavering support of the Heart Foundation at both this year’s and previous events is truly valued. A huge thank you to the event organisers, MDJ Media, and to everyone involved.

We’re feeling inspired by everyone’s achievements and we’re sure you are too!

Hearty at the start line of the Wellington Marathon
