The Arthur Lydiard Legend Events proudly supported by HOKA ONE ONE® are all set to take place on Saturday September 13th, 2014.
The Arthur Lydiard Legend events were created in conjunction with the master coach himself, on courses that have produced our most famous and successful Olympic athletes, the likes of Peter Snell, Murray Halberg, Barry Magee, Bill Bailey and many others…
Today, The Legend event - which comprises the Lydiard Legend Marathon, Arthur's Half Marathon and the Titirangi 10km and 5km run/walk - is a major road run/walk event on the calendar and is a must-do for any devotee of this icon of New Zealand sport.
In it's 10th Anniversary year, HOKA ONE ONE® have come on board as official sponsor of this great event and as such we will have our award-winning shoes available for purchase at the event registration on Friday September 12th at Shadbolt Park as well as on race day itself.

When I first won Ironman New Zealand in 2001 I finished in a time of 8:24:25hr 19yrs later I finish 6th in 8:14:36 as a 47yr old! At least I'm going faster and faster!
I know I can go so much better after such a limited build up in my running preparation so I'm looking forward to when we can race again, and full of motivation to race to my potential and keep pushing the boundaries as a nearly 48yr old!!
Part of the beauty of trail running is that even when the run doesn’t feel so good, being in nature can have its own positive impact on our sense of wellbeing and inner peace – even with no races on the calendar for the next few months.
Whether you’re an experienced trail runner, or a runner looking for the right shoes to start running trail, we hope this guide helps.
