This is a 2.5km out & back race on a light gravel trail alongside the Whangarei harbour, around the edge of the Onerahi peninsula. The route is almost flat winding between the hill and water, then through the mangroves for a total of 5km.


This is a timed event and points will be awarded in each division throughout the series as such:

  • 1st Place = 10 Points
  • 2nd Place = 8 Points
  • 3rd Place = 7 Points
  • 4th Place = 5 Points
  • 5th Place = 4 Points
  • 6th Place = 3 Points
  • 7th Place = 2 Points
  • 8th Place & onwards = 1 Point

Bonus Points

To reward effort, bonus points will be awarded if you can run faster than your previous time:

  • 1 consecutively faster run gets you 2 bonus points
  • 2 consecutive faster runs gets you 5 bonus points
  • 3 consecutive faster runs gets you 9 bonus points
  • 4 consecutive faster runs gets you 14 bonus points

So, this new points system means you could play the strategic game at the beginning of the series. Just don’t sand bag too much, otherwise you will miss out on the primary finishing position points.
