12K Trail
Start at Wainui Athletics Club grounds and head up Reservoir Rd for about 100m. Take a right onto a grassy area and cross over the footbridge and turn right. Up Whakanui Track (this is the Revenge part) to the top, then left onto McKerrow’s Track and run a clockwise 3.5 km loop. Parts of the 3.5km loop are not obvious and I do not recommend exploring this part of the course prior to event day unless you are an experienced tramper, have a good map, a GPS & Cell Phone, have plenty of time, and are prepared to backtrack if necessary. You have been warned. Head back down Whakanui to Richard Prouse Park, and the Finish.
