There’s nothing quite like trail running in the dark! Makara Peak has a fantastic network of trails with great under foot conditions (it’s a mountain bike park) making it an ideal location for XTERRA night running. We mark the trails up extra well and illuminate the tricky bits giving you a great night out running or walking under the star

Venue:Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park, Karori.
Registration:Starts from 4.30pm and will close at 5.30pm. Location is still being worked out, most likely be at the Karori West School (still in negotiations).
Start time: 6pm
Course Distances:Long (10k) and Short (6k) Courses. Short Course open to Walkers

Long Course:Winding tracks with good underfoot conditions. Some great views over the city at night. Quick (and brave) runners back in fifty minutes, the more leisurely among you back in an hour and ten.

Short Course:Like the Long Course runners you get winding tracks with good underfoot conditions. If you are a quick runner you should be going the Long Course, so the rest should be around this course in thirty to forty five  minutes.
