On June 18th, XTERRA heads to the “Land of the Long White Cloud” for a day of trail running in Shakespear Regional Park.
No matter what your fitness level or running experience, the XTERRA Auckland Trail Run Series has something for everyone. You can choose a short course (5-8 km), mid course (10-14 km), long course (16-20 km) or super long course (20+ km). You can choose to walk or run on all courses except the super long course, which is for runners only.
“Shakespear Regional Park has it all,” said race director Frank Clarke. “You will head through farmland, run on awesome, well-groomed, and all-weather single track trails, take off into more open trail sections, pass a waterfall, and challenge yourself up hills.”
The park is located at the tip of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula, and is named after the Shakespear family, who bought the land in the 1880s from local Maori.
This weekend’s race is the second of six races in Auckland Trail Run Series. The next race will take place in Waiuku Forest on Sunday, July 9th.
