Half Marathon
Maitai Valley Road, Maitai, New Zealand
473 Maitai Valley Road Maitai Nelson 7010 NZ

This unique event was inspired by the Nelson Striders running group who made international press when out for their Sunday morning run up the Maitai Valley in August 1994. What started as a peaceful jog ended up with the group scrambling up a bank to avoid the agitated wild boar. Caretaker Trevor Ruffell came to the rescue and had to drown the pig with his bare hands in the Maitai River.

Runners now compete to win the prestigous Trevor Ruffell Tusk Trophy (aka The Boar’s Jaws) by being closest to their estimate over the 21.1km distance up the Maitai Valley. Over the past 18 years winners have all been within 10 seconds of their estimate, with Stu Cottam guessing his exact time in 1998.
