event five

Sunday - 10th June

So you thought you knew our Coastlines? Get up close and personal with Cook Straight. From the spectacular ridge top views to the rugged Coastal Track this is a day you will not forget. A taxing climb at the start of the run sets you up for easy running (not you, Long Course runners, you get a second taxing climb) across the tops with uninterrupted views of Wellington Harbour in one direction and Cook Straight in the other. Later in you run you will be drinking in some salty sea air as you follow the Coastal Track nabs around the spectacular South Coast.
