When: 0815, Saturday July 9 2016
Where: Mangere Domain
What: Mountain run, no flat stuff, just hill climbs and hill bombs.
Format: Run/walk/grovel around the 4 mountain loops for 60 minutes. The goal is to complete as many laps as possible within the time limit. Whatever loop you are on when the horn goes at 60 minutes is your last one. The winner is the person who completes the most loops. If more than one person completes the highest number of loops, the winner is the person who gets back to the start the soonest.
Each loop you return to the event base beside Domain Road. This is the start finish area and spectator viewing spot. From this position, spectators can view about 50% of the course. You can leave any gear or nutrition you want to access here.
