Latest: The Second Orientation run went off very well despite the wet and cold, but that is what trail running is all about - isn't it? Thanks to all those who participated in both the orientation runs and to those who led them. It is now a countdown to the big event itself on the 9 April. Remember to sort your compulsory safety gear well before the time - you don't want to be caught napping on race day. This applies to the front runners too as we all know that Dunedin's weather can be very fickle and no one can outrun a snow storm. Get your entries in by this Wednesday March 29th to get your personalised number and by Wednesday 5 April to avoid late entry fees .
Personalised Numbers: This year we have personalised numbers available. Entries must be received by Wednesday March 29th to get a personalised race number. Note that there is no price change, it just means that you won't have your name on the number.

The 33rd running of this event was in the reverse direction for the first time in its history and this was a one-off with the race reverting to the normal direction in 2017. Details of start and finish areas can be viewed on the race details page. The popular shorter feature race "Race the Summit" was about 15km from Chingford Park to Swampy Summit, as was the recreational walk. There was no teams event this year.
