7km Trail Run/Walk

Starting at the Eastern end of the Waikato River Trails your 7km run/walk will take in the Southern Lake Whakamaru section of the trails; you and the 14km event will be the only courses that get to experience this awesome section of the Trail.

From your start at Tram Road Reserve you head west along the newly re-conditioned gravel trail. You can expect it to be running/walking through a mixture of Native bush, pine forest, and grassy river flats. What you don't need to worry about in this course is big hill's, there isn't any! You will love the flowing nature of this track, but make sure that even while hammering along, you take in the magic vistas that Lake Whakamaru and the towering river banks on the opposite side of the lake produce.

The bush opens and you cruise through some spectacular lake side reserves for the last couple of km's before you finish at the truly magic Whakamaru Christian Camp, situated on its own Island surrounded by the clear waters of Lake Whakamaru.!

Buggy friendly!
