Open to all home-educators in the Auckland Region
This event is held annually in Term 3 in Massey, West Auckland.
The course is held through the rugged and narrow bush trails of Moire Park. Footwear is essential for all runners as part of the course is on a gravel trail. Athletes run at their own risk, and for their own safety they should follow the marshals’ directions and stay on the course at all times.

Year 5 & 6 run about 2km
Year 7 & 8 run about 3km
