Trails Wellington. There are lots of amazing volunteer-based organisations that have put decades of work into developing Wellington’s trail network, which is enjoyed by runners, walkers and mountain bikers. Wellington Trails Trust was one of the many groups helping to make great trails. Read the story on what this group has been doing and what they have to offer for a range of trail users in Wellington. We had a chat with Anthony Edmonds to get the inside story.
Jumbo Holdsworth Trail Race. One of the most grueling yet achievable mountain races of the lower North Island is held each year in January in the mighty Tararua ranges. The race in question is the Jumbo-Holdsworth Trail Race. We had a chat with Andrew Thompson who is the new race director on why this is an iconic event for the serious mountain trail runners bucket list.
The Tip Track Marathon – There is a track that almost every Wellington trail runner knows jokes about and dreads. It’s called the Tip Track. We are about to find out from the founder of the Tip Track Marathon, local trail running connoisseur Brad Coleman why this is a unique event you should be doing.
