April 2, 2017Mountain Run
The Porirua Grand Traverse has a number of events with individual and team categories in the multisport event, a duathlon option for non-kayakers, the 18km mountain run or the 7.5km fun run/walk and a dedicated youth challenge.
The mountain run goes up Colonial Knob and along the shores of Cook Strait, with terrain ranging from bush and farmland to beaches and wild rocky coastlines. “It was the first time I ever stopped in a race to admire the view,” said one participant.
The fun run route is a spectacular and achievable course from Titahi Bay, along the beachfront, over Whitireia Park and then taking walking tracks around to Onepoto for a final 2k to the finish line at Whitireia Polytechnic.
