For the second event in the series, we head out to Levin for some shenanigans in the Kohitere Forest.
The track starts on a forestry road before heading into the forest along challenging single-track uphill switchbacks. After the single-track section participants rejoin the forestry road. From here those doing the shorter course head home along a speedy downhill stretch.
Those doing the long course head further out for an undulating out-and-back stretch of gravel road along the hilltops before hitting another single track section for some exciting downhill trail running on their way to the finish.
All finishers receive a high-quality, metal finishers medal. Do all events and collect all three the medals in the series!
