Auckland’s Most Beautiful Beach Community
Less than an hour north of the harbour bridge, one of Auckland’s worst kept secrets is waiting to be discovered. The beautiful white sand beach of Omaha is home to million dollar holiday homes and million dollar views. Come for the day or spend the weekend and soak up the beach lifestyle right on Auckland’s doorstep.

The 2017 Mike Pero Omaha Half Marathon is race two in the Garmin Auckland Half Marathon Series. Come and enjoy the 21K, 10K or 5K, run or walk around this beautiful coastal community before settling in for the Kids’ Dash. Drive in on race morning or make a wonderful weekend of it with a wide selection of baches available to rent. Who knows, you may end up owning one!
The entire community of Omaha and nearby Matakana wish to welcome you to their little corner of paradise. Wonderful Matakana School is a major beneficiary of the event and you can expect to see many of the kids running in the dash whilst parents help out on course or at the food stalls. A great community spirit is guaranteed … all that is missing is you!
