Christchurch, Canterbury, NZ

Type: Running - Local

From a low key beginning in 2001, when 31 runners finished the course, the event has now increased to include hundreds completing the course, including many top local and international athletes.
The event attracts interest from outside Christchurch and is a popular build-up to the Kepler Challenge in early December. Many competitors return for the challenge and the scenic nature of the course which overlooks both the Canterbury Plains and Lyttelton Harbour. Conditions for the event in early Spring can vary from a hot fine day to the type of conditions encountered in 2007 where it was extremely wet and cold.
