Auckland Xterra - Waiuku Forest

August 09, 2020

At the mouth of the mighty Waikato River lies the largely unknown, often-forgotten corner of Auckland and into the mysterious Waiuku Forest.
From the get-go, you’ll be cloaked by towering pine trees offering hard-packed, low impact sand-based trails underfoot. Courses are all a little longer than usual and boast extensive and breath-taking views over the Tasman Sea, Port Waikato and the mouth of the mighty Waikato River guaranteeing spectacular vistas during your morning’s trail run/walk.
We’ve made it easy for you to gather the entire gang, irrespective of varying fitness and age levels, and head out of the city for an action-packed family outing. The Mid and Short courses are available as walks too, so one event you may get to stretch out in the long or super long while your partner takes a wee whipper snapper or two around the mid or short course.
- Short-course, 5-8km (walk or run)
- Mid course, 10-14km (walk or run)
- Long course, 16-20km (run only)
- Super long course, 20km+ (run only)
