Start at Albert Park and roughly follow the Coast to Coast Walkway from the City to Manukau Harbour - take in as many trails/grass verges/sports fields as you can, as well as making sure to run up to the top of Mt Eden and One Tree Hill along the way. Cross over Mangere Bridge and head up Mt Mangere, before the flat road section to the airport. There are some good trail sections along the way, but be prepared for a decent amount of tarmac, or at least running on the grass verge. Hopefully you get to the Airport before your flight leaves! But you have the same issue driving in Auckland... so might as well run!
