|Name||Maratoto Challenge Trail|
|Transportation||We drove to starting line|
|Lodging||Stayed at the local Holiday park|
|Comments||Sharon was off guard when we showed up a day before the race in the early afternoon
we chatted a bit then we took off back to our camp
Our registration were done the very morning on the race day.
Maratoto is a 100 % farmland NZ run .. no doubt ..
We were looking of something local and pushing
the route took us straight up and down …
through landscape we wouldn’t have had the opportunity to run by ourselves the winding sealed track, moving onto gravel and up into the Maratoto Valley,
the course traversing this beautifully bushed valley had been a bit more challenging that we previously thought .
it opened ourself to the fact that there is no ” just a little race ” ,
a trail can be very demanding , and has to be well prepared
It is a magnificent scenic countryside race that deserved to been known for a good cause … Fundraising for Hikutaia School …
