Canterbury Champs - Day 2 Added by: Joolz
Date: 2 December 2018
Map: Hogs Back
Club Peninsula & Plains OC
Location: Christchurch
Region: South Island
Country: New Zealand
Event type: Foot
Description: This is an open event for anyone to enter, but the courses are designed to be ONZ High Performance level to test our Elite WOC and JWOC team contenders. There will be 10 courses offered across all age group categories.

Hogsback is one of PAPO's premier maps, which was mapped by elite Nick Hann. Since then, it has been used for our showcase events and deserves its place in the top collection. The native beech forest is very runnable, with a natural scattering of old branches underfoot. The rivers are clear and cold but crossable and the hills, ridges and gullies create wonderful navigational challenges. There are a few tracks that may help (depending on the deviousness of the planner) and are worth watching out for. Areas without trees may have grass, marsh, dracophyllum bushes or open gravel and from the top of the hills there are clear views up to the mountains around.
