Course planners have under-used the Coach Road corner of the map, this is fresh terrain for most. We can choose farmland and bush tracks. Suggest putting markers out on the way uphill, so that we get a net downhill course. Make use of the best weather of the year to explore, run with a map, introduce friends and family, etc. You know you won't have time or will want to be competitive later in the year.
Completely DIY event, see website above for U-Max style. The event has been run, and the map on the website has been replaced with the course as put out by participants, and run. As a result of starting high up, it is 3.3km long with only 120m climb. The link is www.mapsport.co.nz/hvoc/U-Max Bunkers.pdf. The park is open for public use though the ribbons will be taken in shortly.
