West Wind - Wind Farm, Makara (map)
We offer a unique running experience in New Zealand with access to over 25km of high-quality trails amongst the most advanced wind farms in the world. You'll run through pine forests, coastal trails with stunning views, and ridge lines with the South Island in sight, all while being surrounded by 110-meter wind turbines.
No matter what course you are doing, be it Short, Medium, or Long, you must carry an Emergency Survival Bag and an Emergency Whistle, both available from Event Registration, Bivouac Stores, or any good tramping shop.
Anybody under 16 is welcome to enter any Short XTERRA event, but they must be accompanied by a fee paying adult who runs WITH THEM for the entire event. No exceptions.
There will be no cash refunds made for this series. However, if for some reason you are unable to participate in an event then your entry fee is transferable to another XTERRA Wellington race within the current series, provided you inform event organisers a week prior to the event date. Individual Entries are transferable between individuals for a $15 transfer fee. Please apply for transfers via email request.
Series Entries are not transferable and not able to be partially refunded if some events are missed.
