Welcome to the 7th season of the Albany Lakes Summer Series!
January – February 2017
The Westfield Albany Lakes Summer Series is a 5km and 10km run and walk series with a 2km kids’ dash, based at the stunning Albany Lakes Civic Park on Auckland’s North Shore. After four seasons, “the Lakes” is now so well-established in the North Shore that Auckland Council Upper Harbour Board have identified it as an iconic event for the area.
The races take place over three summer Sundays; one in January and two in February. It’s a fantastic way to get up, get out and get healthy during the summer months and our events attract fast runners, slow walkers and everyone else in between. If you enjoy making the most of the summer in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere – this is the event for you.
