Waitawa Regional Park

Tucked away on the south east 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 a 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?!

Waiuku Forest

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.

Totara Park

Another of Auckland's hidden gems, Totara Park is packed with variety in every course distance and delivers heaps of smile-inducing running and walking. You'll breathe in plenty of fresh air as you run or walk through the trails and encounter some fast, hard single trails twisting their way throughout the green rolling hills.

Just a hop, skip and jump from Auckland’s city centre, this natural bushland setting will still provide you with a marvellous escape to the wilds.

Riverhead Forest

Riverhead Forest

There is an endless and ever-changing network of trails in this pine plantation forest. Once again we can expect Riverhead to have a sufficient amount of glorious mud and clay! For the most part, this course is on a clay surface except for the metalled road sections. We recommend wearing shoes with sufficient tread or pairing up with a buddy at the start or out on course for some of the slippery and steeper parts. It's not by any means scary but it sometimes helps runners and walkers, especially those new to the trails to have someone close by to lend a hand.

The mid and short courses are relatively friendly (elevation wise), once you head deeper into the wilderness (from the event base) there are some real lung-busters and some pretty cool views to be had at these heights. Long and Super long participants - be prepared :)

Hunua Ranges

As the largest area of native forest in Auckland the Hunua Ranges boast an outstanding selection of glorious single track, stunning bush, fast gravel trails and even a stream crossing or two to keep it interesting! Tucked in the breathtaking heart of this forest you’ll forget you are anywhere near the big city

While the Short and the Mid are an absolute delight for all levels of ability, the longer courses in this location are unashamedly tough! Technical sections and some serious climbing that will give pure joy to those of you that love the challenge!
