Tucked away on the southeast coast of Auckland this hidden gem makes for some truly stunning running conditions!
Made up of three small peninsulas Waitawa boasts outstanding views across the Firth of Thames on every peak and some wicked sections of native bush packed with neat trails just screaming out to be used.
This one is also a good entry level course with enough undulation to certainly keep it interesting but without the intimidating elevation or very technical terrain of some of the other locations. And did we mention the views?!
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. You can choose to come along to 1 event, 6 events or any number in between – whatever works for you!
Each Auckland XTERRA Series event offers four distance options:
Short (5 - 8km) Run or Walk
Mid (10 - 14km) Run or Walk
Long (16 - 20km) Run Only
Super Long (20km+) Run Only
There's always some challenging but achievable terrain to tame while you're out there, and there will ALWAYS be a cold Speight’s and a hot sausage (including veggie) for you when you get to the finish!
