interesting race

Looks like a pretty mint race, 18km from Whakapapa to Turoa with plenty of ups and downs. Pity about the $75 entry fee! and a broken leg.

$75 for a running race!!! extreme

Yeah, makes orienteers look like a bunch of tight arses when they are complaining about those $20 entry fees.

I am doing The Goat race too, so if anyone else is I will see you there!

The Kauri Run (www.arcevents.co.nz) which is on the following day in the Coromandel and also looks like a mint run is $95!

The Mt Te Aroha race always a good one and normaly has a good O turn out (race record held my Phil Wood until they shorten it a bit because of road rules, but his time is still faster)

Andrew I suggest you don't do it tho as Dad has broken his leg in this race

Callum Harland, NZ world mountain running team (2nd kiwi behind john wyatt), did The Goat as a training run last weekend. He reckons its actually 24km and described it as a bloody tough run.
A quick count of the contours looks like 1000m+ of climb.
Sounds like a must do to me!
