Mountain Run Only

A spectacular and challenging 18k run not to be missed

A chance for keen mtn runners who aren't keen on the multisport or duathlon option to get a taste of this awesome 18k run.

The Mountain Run Only option is a spectacular and demanding run through native bush, open farmland and pine forest - this mountain run has true X factor!

Expected times 1hr 20min to 3.5hrs

This 18km Mountain Run really is something special. Taking you to the highest point in the region, it offers a taste of almost every type of running from native bush tracks, private farm lands and hidden coastal beaches with views over Porirua, Ohariu Valley and Cook Strait.

It starts from HQ and runs through Porirua Scenic Reserve and over the very top of Colonial Knob where you head south down into Spicer Forest for a loop back around to the trails of lower Colonial Knob before taking in trails through Viard College and Porirua Stream back to finish at HQ.

With 900m of climbing this run is as challenging as it is spectacular. But if you have done a half marathon then you'll handle our Mountain Run.
