Event Information

U-Max is a DIY event format, see website below. The Hutt  riverbank is always changing and in particular the regional council is constructing a pilot wetland. Yes we've mapped it.  And we've mapped some crossing zones in the river, and some interesting contours in the riverbed. The map also includes Belmont School and the rhododendron maze in the domain. Suitable yellow to orange, and for what we predict will be the new big thing - non-urban sprints. So we can tailor courses to whoever comes.

Print your own map from the links below. There are two overlapping maps at 1:3333. Why the funny number? Our river corridor mapping is at 1:5000 to control excessive sprint-type detail. Then we enlarge to 150% because (a) some of our eyes are not as good as others and (b) allowance for the quality of home printers.

BTW if you can't print at home come anyway - some people usually print a spare copy! There's no entry fee for U-Max events.
