“Fast and flat” is how Kilian Jornet famously described the North Face 100 (now UTA) course in the Blue Mountains, Australia. This is nothing like that – it truly is as fast and flat as you can possibly get around these parts.

It includes part of the Te Araroa (Length of NZ) trail. Most suitable for: Anyone looking for a flat(ish) non-technical run.

Trail Conditions:
A mix of easy single track, gravel and sealed road (verges available on most stretches)
