The Wild Turkey is an iconic Auckland adventure run.
It offers a 21km half marathon and a 15km version, both on the stunning tracks of the Southern Waitakere Ranges.
The loop course taking in the tracks of the Southern Waitakere Ranges has some serious climb but this is rewarded with the amazing views of the rugged West Coast and heads of the Manukau Harbour.
10th anniversary and, sadly, the last running of this event. We are organising another trail running event - the Hillary Trail Challenge - which will follow the route of the established Hillary Trail (75km, 30km and 15km). This is in consultation stage with the Auckland Council and is planned for early 2013. There is much consultation to complete with local groups and Council (hence the 2013 date), but we know already that there is a section of the Wild Turkey event that has a council imposed 1 event per year limit on it. So it is one or the other and we believe the Hillary Trail Challenge event will be the better of the two.
So take your part in history and partake in the last event Wild Turkey Off-Road Half Marathon and 15km!
A complimentary barbeque and prize giving will follow the event.
