Blackmores XTERRA Series Info - 2014Thanks for visiting the Blackmores XTERRA Auckland Trail Run/Walk Series website. And a massive thanks to all of those that took part in the 2013 series - it was a cracker! Rest assured that the series will be back again next year, and promises to be even better, and possibly bigger?!
Please note that information and dates etc on the site are current for the 2013 series, but will give you a good idea about what this great series is all about, and what you can expected for next year! Next years events will be on the same weekends as the 2013 series - and the word on the street is there might be a 7th event added at the end of the series in 2014! More about that to come later! We will update things as we confirm locations/dates etc, and will open registrations early April 2014. See you back here then!
Firstly, we would like to give a massive, warm XTERRA Series welcome to our new title sponsor for the series... BLACKMORES! We are stoked to have you involved for what promises to be the best series yet! You like running and walking on trails right...? You have already, or you're ready to ditch those roads and footpaths? You're keen to spend some quality time in quality locations, with other like-minded people. A "YES" to any one of the above means you're primed and ready for the 2013 Blackmores XTERRA Auckland Trail Run/Walk Series.
The Blackmores XTERRA Auckland Trail Run/Walk Series, just like a good bottle of Hawkes Bay Cab-Sav only gets better with age; and this year Auckland based off-road series is turning 10 years old, and is going from strength to strength. With a new venue or two planned for this year's series, and some exciting new course options currently being nailed down in some of our regular forests, it's looking like this year will be another goodie for this quintessential off-road series.
Huge on fun in a low key, laid back event environment... this series is an absolute cracker. It's one we're proud to bring to you, and regardless of your athletic aspirations and level of ability, we think you'll love it too. You do NOT have to be a super athlete to enjoy this series! We welcome walkers in the Short and Mid course event options.
For those of you who have experienced the XTERRA Auckland Trail Run Series before, you'll know that the key focus is about getting you onto the best trails in the best off-road locations in and around this great city of ours. We'll try our very best to keep the drive to within an hour too! Keep
an eye out for the carpooling info and options, which will be released closer to the time.
The format remains the same - each event offers 4 courses ranging from Short (5 - 7km) to Super Long (21km+). There's always some challenging but achievable terrain to tame while you're out there, and there'll always be a cold SPEIGHT'S beer and a hot sausage for you when you get to the finish!
