At the mouth of the mighty Waikato River lies the largely unknown – and often-forgotten – Waiuku Forest, all cloaked by towering pine trees with hard-packed, low impact sand-based trails underfoot.
Courses are all a little longer than usual and boast extensive and breathtaking views over the Tasman Sea, Port Waikato and the mouth of the mighty Waikato River.
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!
