Your adventure starts at the top of Belmont regional park. You will duck straight into your first Mountain Bike park and some trail celebration running into the valley and then using 4 degrees, one of the nicest climbs around, to wind your way up onto the ridgelines. From Belmont be inspired as you run around the dress circle and underneath a truly magnificent feat of engineering as you pass under Transmission Gully on your way into Porirua.
This is the first city element of the event. But you wouldn’t know it as you wind your way downhill through Bothemly Park into Porirua for a brief stop before climbing the magnificent Te Ara Utawai that takes you to the top of Rangituhi. Be sure to be here during daylight hours as the views are truly magnificent. Rangituhi is the start of our ridgeline run that is going to link you to Wellington.
From Rangituhi you will run through Spicer Forest linking up with the skyline track that connects you to Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park. Lose yourself in the amazing trails (so good you will do a couple of laps). Salvation takes you to more trail brilliance as you run around Zealandia, where the birdsong will cheer you on as you connect into Waimapihi, one of the jewels in Wellington’s trail crown.
With 20km to go weave through the urban maze of trails through southern Wellington, past the zoo, then North up to Mount Victoria. From here enjoy the very different macrocarpa and pine trails until your final journey along the waterfront to your rightful place in Wellington Folklore.
2966m of climbing. 100km of work. An entire lifetime of memories. A heart full of joy.
