Training Run Success

The Training Run last weekend went well.  The runners got across the tops in good time and reported the track isn't too bad and the water tanks in Alpha and Kime are full!  The weather was usual Tararua weather with wind and mist around Mt Hector.


Ready to go

Mt Hector

Finished!

 


The Tararua Mountain Race is one of New Zealand's oldest mountain races, having first been raced in 1990.   The Tararua Ranges are widenly renowned in New Zealand for tough mountain terrain and weather, so the race is not for the inexperienced or faint hearted! 

 


Traditionally the race is held over the Southern Crossing.  From 2014 a new route was introduced as an alternative course along the river valleys between Kaitoke and Holdsworth - another classic Tararua tramping route.
