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 …
