For the adventurous, we have a 22K route that begins in the valley at the base of the Mckenzie trail network. Runners will have a flat to undulating start before tackling a long climb trail. You will come out at the paraglide launch and beautiful views for a brief respite before heading uphill again into some beautiful forest aptly named Middle Earth. Then you descend all the way back to the valley. Stunning trails and views await you! To add an extra element, we are timing your first climb, and a segment of your descent. There will be prizes for the fastest ascent and fastest descent times. Will you risk blowing up, or your overall position by gunning for those sections? It will be exciting to see tactics play out! Our trail half marathon is part of the XTERRA Trail Run World Series and thus has XTERRA Trail Run World Championship slots on offer.
For those that aren’t up for a tough trail half marathon, we have a fun 9K course too.
