Hatea Run Night Series
5 weeks of Wednesday evening trail racing
What is the Hātea Run Night Series?
Each June our running club organises a series of 5 races on trails around Whangārei. Typically the Night Series kicks off on the first Wednesday closest to Matariki, making the most of the dark evenings. This series contains a mix of formats or varying distances, traditionally ending with the Flying Downhill Kilometer, followed by pizza and beer at Frings!
All abilities and ages are welcome along to these races, but since they are held in the dark during winter, you must come prepared. You need to have a headlamp otherwise you won’t be able to see where you are going, you must be wearing at least one item of high visibility clothing and ideally your footwear needs to have adequate grip for the conditions.
First and foremost, these events are a lot of fun, often in pouring rain. They are an opportunity to decorate yourself in blight colours, LEDs and glow sticks so you light up our local trails as you fly… these events make you feel like a kid again! So come along, it will be great to see you all there!
