Long Runs

Show Profile  darren Posted: 3 July 2006, 7:53 AM  
We are starting up some Wednesday night long runs in and around Auckland. Venue will change each week with a mix of street, parks, forest, bush tracks...

Check out this forum each week for time and place. Anyone who is keen to cruze for a couple of hours is welcome to join in. You will need some sort of headlamp. A small L.E.D style will be sweet for the city runs but you might want something more grunty when we go bush.

If you are keen this Wednesday we will start with a bit of volcanoe hopping from the One Tree Hill observatory. Be there at 6pm. Let me know if you might be late and we can loop around.

C ya there.

Default venue is the Observatory at O.T.H, running from 6pm. Will be there this Wednesday 26th.
If the start place is different it will be posted here!

Remember a torch for the off-road bits.

C ya there.

For a change - his Wednesday (16th)from the Grandstand in the Auckland Domain at 6pm. A bit of coastal boardwalk, parking lot, alleyway, dodgy backstreets and lovely bush track action. If you're up for a cruisy couple of hours come along. Don't forget a torch.

Back to O.T.H Observatory next week!

If you're interested in long runs you might like to join the Ridge-Runners mailing list. Though Wellington-based, the trips are all over the place, or they might give you some ideas for organising others. Email to wellingtonridgerunners-subscribe@yahoogroups.com

For example... (Mike is Mike Sheridan mike.sheridan (at) xtra...)

1. Mike's Training Camp
We have run a couple of these over the years. Where a group of like minded Ridge Runners head off to some exotic location for a week of adventure. The exotic location is usually my favourite - Karamea, at the top of the west coast. Close to some great mountain running and tramping, (Heaphy, Wangapeka and Karamea Bluff) fantastic mountain biking, (Charming Creek, Denniston short cut, Oparara) caving at Oparara, coasteering at Karamea Bluff, rafting or kayaking in the Karamea etc. You won't run out of things to do. The idea would be to rent a van, hire a bach, and bring your own running shoes and MTB (and kayak?) <snip> I am thinking of the week beginning 28 Oct, back the following Saturday 4th Nov to enable us to do the Guy Fawkes Rogaine.

2. Top of the South Run
Inspired by one of the founding Ridge Runners, Pete Jeremson's run a few years back - The idea is to run/walk the Abel Tasman track, the Heaphy track and the Wangapeka track, (with a rest day in between each track) - All up, 5 or 6 days, staying at accomodation (that has a spa), and supported by a vehicle to drop us off and pick us up and carry overnight gear. Participants could do one, two or all three tracks - the support vehicle giving us the flexibility to cope with different levels of km your body will take. <snip> Timing on this, open to suggestions, but thinking maybe of mid December.
