Event descriptionThis event incorporates the famous NZ Katoa Po Night Relays, as well as the CD Area Championships. The event is a road trip beginning in Taupo and finishing in Auckland. (3hrs driving in between - so still very close!) In 2007 Tero Fohr and Heli Jukkola used this event as their European Winter training. In 2007 Hanny Allston also attended.
Terrain descriptionVariety of terrains being covered. Starting in Taupo with complex erosion gullies, then into Hamilton with a brilliant area for the sprint at Waikato university. Gully spur the other terrain. Finishing in Auckland with some sand dune forest.
Training possibilitiesPlease get in contact with Carsten Joergensen about possibilities of training further around the event. In Jan there is to be a training camp in the South Island if you wish to come and try some other areas. You can also run on the map and courses used for the WOC Middle Disance trials for 2005 if you contact Simon Addison.
Holiday activities,nature,hiking etc.Very close to Rotorua - geothermal resort town in NZ. NZ is a brilliant destination to combine orienteering with a holiday!
