This event has passed. Congratulations to all the participants. Get race results and photos.

The XTERRA Wellington Trail Running Series Starlight Run at Wainui Trail Park is on Saturday, 27 April 2019.

Imagine picking your way through bush-clad trails with hundreds of other bobbing head torches, all under a starlit sky. No personal bests in this event, just a brand new experience for most and new way to explore Wellington’s great trails.

The tracks are nice and sure underfoot so you'll arrive home safe and sound. There's no special gear required, other than a head torch - with NEW batteries!

Xterra Wellington - Event Three routes

11k

This course follows the black solid line shown above in an anti-clockwise direction. You start with a good kilometre of 4WD track allowing for passing and sorting out of your racing order before you hit the single trail. The next 15 minutes or so is a consistent but very runnable climb up to the ridgeline. Turn right, following a track called Towhai Traverse and adding in another loop that includes a thigh-killing climb, made acceptable only by the fact that its night time and you can’t see how long it goes on for. From the top you can see the whole world. Then you head left back down the hill (check out the views over Wellington) on another section of 4WD (more good passing opportunities!). Finally back into the bush for the final couple of km back to the finish line.
