Auckland has a long and varied history of marathons, often with two or three marathons being held within or in the vicinity of Auckland in any given year during the 1970's and early 1980's. By the late 1980's, these several competing marathons had passed away. Beginning in 1992, a single marathon has been held in Auckland (with minor exceptions) and constitutes the present series. Some of the more identifiable precursor series follow.
