About

A spectacular and demanding 18km run through native bush, open farmland and rocky coastlines – this mountain run has true X factor! The Porirua Grand Traverse really is something special. Taking you to the highest point in the region, it offers a taste of almost every type of running from native bush tracks, private farm lands and hidden coastal beaches with views over Porirua, Ohariu Valley and Cook Strait. It starts from HQ and runs through Porirua Scenic Reserve and up Colonial Knob where you hop the fence into the private Pikarere Farm and head down to the remote western coast and back over Takapuwahia Reserve to finish at HQ. With 900m of climbing this run is as challenging as it is spectacular. But if you have done a half marathon then you’ll handle our Mountain Run.

The 18km Mountain Run is part of a multi sports event, but can also be done as a single section. The event also offers a 9k run/walk, and various mountain bike and kayak options.
