Based from the seaside village of Te Turanga-o-Kupe/Seatoun, the October Afterwork Rogaine will focus on the Hills and to a lesser degree flats of the southern half of Te Motu Kairangi/Miramar Peninsula. It was here that Kupe first landed in Wellington and is rich in both Maori and European history.
Defenses of the harbour entrance were concentrated here in both Maori Pa sites and military fortifications, the later of which many remnants still exist, both in plain sight and hidden… Competitors will have a good challenge exploring these and will be rewarded by venturing out of the Urban areas both on the score sheet and possibly with features they never knew existed.
There is a diverse spread of terrain including a good mix of urban, coastal, bush trail and just enough off trail to necessitate a compass. Due to it's coastal location, if the weather rolls in there will be areas of the course which will be quite exposed, so dress appropriately.
3 hour and 90 minute options are available.
Registrations close Sunday 17 October. There are no late registrations.
