The second rogaine in the 2019 Afterwork Rogaine series is next Wednesday 15th May!
This month we move into the city exploring the nooks and crannies of Mt Vic and the town belt.
There will be a 90 minute event starting at the same time as the three hour event. Half the time, half the price, but no pizza. Great for first timers, families or those with especially early bed times.
Mt Vic and the town belt offers a surprising variety of terrain including urban streets, native bush and exotic bush. There's little in the way of flat ground but rewards aplenty with stunning vistas of the city lights on offer and even encounters with foreign animals if you're lucky.
Some of the tracks can be slippery when wet but fingers crossed we get a dry night for it. Most of the tracks are clear of vegetation but watch for the gorse if you're looking to take shortcuts!
Start / Finish is Hataitai Velodrome (access off Ruahine St and drive up past the netball courts)
