Run over the Coromandel Ranges!

Start on the Pinnacles track and head up! Stop at the hut for a rest and some water, then run back to the Rangihau track and follow that. This track is much more wild than the well used Pinnacles track. Follow this track to where is opens out on the forestry road ( Rangihau road). Follow that all the way down to the flat, then keep a look out for a place to cross the Waiwawa river. There is a submerged concrete path/road with a 4x4 track on either side of the river. Do not attempt if the river running high, or there has been lots of rain. On the other side of the river is the Tapu Coroglen road which leads to the Coroglen pub. If you miss the river crossing then run to the end of the track and turn left over one lane bridge to access to Coroglen pub. AKA the finishing line!
