The Manuka Trail and Yoga + Hike:      4th December 2021

 Welcome to the second running of the Manuka Trail!  We are excited to share with you the trails and lake views that make up our Eastern Taranaki farm. This year we are adding to our experiences Yoga + Hike 1.5KM in the hills, in collaboration with Sanctuary Hill.

 

Yoga + Hike                                       

Yoga + Hike is simply combining a hike with yoga into one fitness session. You're hike will be over farm land, with a Yoga session at the midpoint before returning. 

 

KC Collier Classic:  30km              

Not for the faint of heart.  This begins from Lake Rotorangi, climbing to ridge top views of Mt Taranaki and through mature native bush. 

 

Bush Flat and Back: 15km        

All the best views without blowing the gasket. This trail will take you through the farms 300ha QEII native bush block with stunning views of Lake Rotorangi and Mt Taranaki.

 

Around the flats: 5km              

A picturesque run along the river flats with a challenging climb to the finish line.

 

Race Details:

The 30km run begins at 8am while the 15km and 5km runs begin at 9am.    Yoga + Hike begins at 9am.

The first 3km share the same course before the different race courses diverge.  All courses are well marked with marshalls positioned in key areas (including through the bush section).

There will be one drink/aid station for the 15km contestants and two for the 30km contestants.  We will have paper cups but encourage entrants to bring their own cups/bottles.
