Event description

The lower part of the Wainui Trail Park has developed into a complex little maze. While bikers are interested in the trails, some bits of passable bush make it rather interesting for foot-o. Have mapped at 1:5000 for bush-sprint-middle-o. Ideal nav training at various levels, and of course physical training in nice bush. We've left the ribbons out from New Year's Eve, its a nice little course of 3.2km with 200m climb. Middle dist for elites or long for the rest of us, haha, Shortcuts make 2.4km/180m or 2.1km/110m.

So its not completely DIY, but see website above for the U-Max "style". Print your own map prior from the website, the link is www.mapsport.co.nz/hvoc/U-Max Wainui.pdf.  Do 2 copies just in case; someone without a printer may appreciate your spare. Some of the close controls were in public view so we'll share putting those out, then get on with it.

Best coffee for afterwards is in Petone.
