As the largest area of native forest in Auckland the Hunua Ranges boast an outstanding selection of glorious single track, stunning bush, fast gravel trails and even a stream crossing or two to keep it interesting! Tucked in the breathtaking heart of this forest you’ll forget you are anywhere near the big city
While the Short and the Mid are an absolute delight for all levels of ability, the longer courses in this location are unashamedly tough! Technical sections and some serious climbing that will give pure joy to those of you that love the challenge!
The Auckland XTERRA Series is a series of 6 trail running/walking events within an hour of the Auckland CBD. This series is for anyone who likes to keep fit and be held accountable over the winter months and is all about getting you onto the best trails.
