6 towns, 5 start lines, 1 finish line, 140km off road, and 1 day of flat out fun if you’re ready to take part in the 2019 Trail Trilogy. With something for everyone, this super event takes place on the Hauraki Rail Trail on Sunday 15 September 2019.
The Trail Trilogy courses offer popular running distances and cater for runners, walkers, individuals and teams. There are five events, a 9k fun run, Half Marathon, Marathon, 55k Intro Ultra, and 100k Ultra Marathon, which utilise the entire length of the rail trail.
If you're looking for a fun experience with a group of friends or colleagues, why not put a team together for the marathon or ultra-marathon races. All 5 events start at different locations (Kaiaua, Thames, Te Aroha, Paeroa, Waikino), with all events finishing at Waihi's historic train station.
A new Event, Race the Train was introduced in 2018. This great option for families starts with a free train ride from Waihi Station to the start line at Waikino. The fun race includes the underpass and Ohinemuri River foot-bridge, before heading upstream chasing the train all the way to the finish line at Waihi Station.
Waihi’s Trilogy Events created the Trail Trilogy in 2017. The vision was to get people of all ages active, and to promote the Hauraki Region through the Rail Trail. The event has attracted over 500 entrants each year, and is expected to grow due to its appeal to runners and walkers of all ages.
The Hauraki Region is a great place for a fun group weekend away. If you think there’s an event for you, you’ll find more information and registration details here.
