We are very excited to introduce you to our newest Macpac Motatapu event, the Sawpit Trail Run!

This 8.5km trail follows the Sawpit Gully loop track, starting and finishing from Wilcox Green in Arrowtown.

The Sawpit Gully track is a true local’s favourite that offers up stunning views, mountain creeks, beach forest and tussock covered hills all within an 8.5km loop.

Located on Coronet Peak station, the trail was originally built as pack track that linked early settlers to the Big Hill Track and through to the Quartz Mining town of Macetown. The continuous change in scenery and terrain makes this course an exciting and challenging option for all levels of trail runners.

Not only does this offer another great option for trail runners and walkers, but it’s also big news for our XTERRA Triathletes, as this course will be used as the run leg.

Entries to the Sawpit Trail Run will open this Thursday 31 August at 11am, with a super special introductory price of $49.

In the meantime, check out the full course description and map here.
