Night Light Trail Run and Movie Fiesta - Wellington
Posted: 21 June 2011, 7:43 AM
Not orienteering, but of interest to anyone who runs off road...
When: Friday 24 June, be there and ready to start with a run at 6pm.
Where: Tararua Tramping Club, 4 Moncrieff Street (click link for map), located off Elizabeth Street, which is off Kent Terrace.
$5 door charge, but also the chance to win a Salomon XA20 running / adventure racing pack.
Hosted by Anna Frost, all-conquering kiwi trail runner with the Salomon International Team, the evening will start with a short Night Light Trail Fun Run around Mt Victoria. It will be about 45 minutes and at various paces so everyone from beginners to elite are welcome to join us! Don't forget your head torches and your trail running shoes!
Then at 7pm with some nibbles and drinks we are showing 2 awesome short movies:
Killian's Quest Kilimanjaro - the story of Spanish guru Killian Jornet's record attempt to run up & down the highest mountain in Africa. This guy is simply unbelievable & his story is beautifully told.
For Alan - the award winning film about Mal Law's inaugural 7in7 Challenge of 2009. He ran NZ's 7 mainland Great Walks in 7 consecutive days to honour the memory of his brother Alan and raise $85,000 for the Leukaemia & Blood Foundation. An epic adventure set against the backdrop of iconic kiwi trails.
For those on facebook there is an event page, and any updates will be posted there.
