Entries for the Kaweka Mountain Marathon 1 Feb 2014 are now open.
The Kaweka Mountain Marathon embraces the natural beauty of the Hawke’s Bay high country. The routes will take you through forest clad hills, over rugged and exposed mountain terrain to the highest point in the Kaweka Ranges, Kaweka J. At 1721m, Kaweka J offers spectacular views to the volcanoes of the Central Plateau, the Kaimanawa Ranges and the Hawke’s Bay. From the top of Kaweka J, the course takes you down into the heart of the Kawekas, returning to the start via deep gullies and a final ascent and descent over Kuripapango to the finish line. An exceptional physical challenge requiring high levels of fitness. Every distance is a marathon undertaking in the truest sense of the word that will reward all who take it on.
Four distances available:
Kaweka Klassic ~ 50 kms
Kaweka Koaster ~ 36 kms
Kaweka Kruiser ~ 19 kms
