The XTERRA Wellington Trail Running Series race at Makara Wind Farm is part of an annual series of off road trail runs through the winter in Wellington, New Zealand.
High quality trails with more variety than ever expected, from pine needle tracks through forest, to coastal trails with the Cook Straight crashing on the rocks beside you, to ridge lines with the South Island only 25 kilometers away. And finally, and uniquely, you’ll be running amongst 110 meter wind turbines.
Each race in the series has short, medium and long distances, which equate to approximately 5km to 7km for short courses, 10km to 14km for medium courses, and 17km to 20km+ for long courses.
