What to expect

This is a real doozy of a course – km for km it has to be one of the most beautiful and rewarding trail races on the planet. It’s very much a run of two halves: a tough, mostly uphill first 18km followed by a more cruisy, mostly downhill run in to Arrowtown. It’s like a potted version of its bigger siblings, exposing runners to a wide array of terrain: everything from mellow beech forest trail to rugged, exposed ridge running. But what it doesn’t share with its bigger siblings is some primo single track trail that will have the ultra-crazies turning green with envy!
