Entries will open for the Backcountry Runner Kaweka Mountain Marathon 2014 in September.
The Backcountry Runner Kaweka Mountain Marathon embraces the natural beauty of the Hawke’s Bay high country. The route 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, that rewards all who take it on.
Three distances are available:
The BCR Kaweka Mountain Marathon (46 kms)
The BCR Kaweka Mountain 33 kms
The BCR Kaweka Mountain 16 kms
