The race starts and finishes at Wilcox Green, Arrowtown taking participants on a 4km loop along the Arrow River Bridges Trail. After setting out from the start line on Nairn Street, runners join onto the Arrow River Bridges Trail staying on the river right following the willow-lined trail downriver for approximately 2km to a footbridge that marks the halfway point. A water station will be available 100m before the bridge. The last half of the race follows the track on the other side of the Arrow River all the way back up to the finish line.
The trail is a hard-packed walking & cycle trail that is part of the Queenstown Trail network. Smooth and easy surface for a first crack at a trail race. There are a few small undulating hills but nothing to stop even the smallest legs in the field. The junior athletes will get to finish alongside the other Motatapu athletes and claim their medal under the finish arch. It’s a perfect test for up and coming trail runners and a great way to include the whole family into the off-road action!
