Event detail

This annual regional competition is considered one of the most challenging and will bring out the champs.  This will be a selection trial for the NZ Cross Country Championships, and will reveal the best runners in each grade.

 

Cross-country race specifics

Courses are clearly marked and the obstacles are carefully considered so they are a challenge without massive ascents or descents, sharp bends, or thick undergrowth, etc.

A championship event is designed for runners to keep their cadence and speed going at a decent speed and still test speed and agility. This is will be a challenging event with variety of terrain on the course.
