Fitbit is the new sponsor of the 5km Challenge at the 2018 ASB Auckland Marathon, extending its sponsorship of the iconic event for a third year. The all-new Fitbit Family 5km takes in the views of Tamaki Drive from the corner of Ngapipi Road and finishes in Victoria Park. Fitbit’s brand ambassador and nutritionist Claire Turnbull will be leading the charge in supporting all participants in the Fitbit Family 5km to get race ready and reach their goals.
Claire is on the lookout for one Kiwi family eager to improve their lifestyle and challenge themselves, joining her on the journey to 5km. “The Fitbit Family 5km is a fun and achievable goal. What better way to kick start summer than parents, kids, uncles and grandmas getting together to get fit and healthy”.
Fitbit will be supporting the chosen family team by providing them with Fitbit Versa and Ace devices, complimentary Fitbit Family 5km race tickets as well personalised workshops with a focus on exercise and nutrition*. Head over to Claire’s Facebook page to enter, winners will be drawn 12pm, Monday 3rd September.

We are always looking for new ways to engage with our participants and to encourage more people to be a part of the biggest marathon event in the country and we have no doubt Fitbit is on to a winner here. Fitbit is committed to helping New Zealanders reach their goals and improve their lives and are bringing that energy and enthusiasm to the Fitbit Family 5km”.
