Saturday 14th March : The 2015 Hillary Ultra Trail Run is on

It’s not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves

Hillary Trail between Arataki and Muriwai is all set for Saturday 14th of March.

The Hillary Trail Ultra Run (‘The Hillary’) is 80km in length, starting at the Arataki Visitor Centre utilising a number of existing regional park tracks, through a few local parks and concludes at the Village Green in Muriwai.

SeanCollinsThe amazing Shaun Collins, of Lactic Turkey, just needs the OK from the Waitakere Ranges Local Board so the participants can run through ‘Local Parks’ under the boards jurisdiction.

Can’t imagine that would be a problem.

There are three ‘sections’ to the run as follows:

  • 80km event between Arataki and Muriwai – 100 participants max
  • 24km event between Piha and Muriwai – 200 participants max
  • 16km event between Bethells and Muriwai – 200 participants max

It’s great fun watching the runners come in.  Might see you there ?
