Leg 2

/Leg 2
Leg 22018-05-10T14:09:10+12:00

The second leg follows the eastern edge of Ngongataha Domain, where the new wooden pedestrian bridge takes you over the stream and into Taui St. You will then pass through the Ngongataha Railway Park before joining SH 36 for the next 4km. The terrain is pastural with some rolling hills. In most places there is a wide shoulder on the road for running.

Just past the 5km mark the road curves gently up to the junction where SH36 veers off to Tauranga. Bear right onto Hamurana Rd where a long gentle downhill brings you back to the lake side. The second changeover point is dead ahead of you at the boat ramp. Job done!

All teams need to take the upmost care at Changeover Points

We know the changeover points are a lot of fun and it’s very exciting waiting for your runner to arrive before you dash off to the next changeover. However, all participants MUST take the utmost care of themselves and those around them. Please, please, please – this is not the Olympics and a few seconds will not matter at the end of the afternoon. Team drivers – you MUST enter, park and exit the changeover vicinity slowly and safely. Concentrate on the road and those around you, not the event. Team members, look out for other cars when you exit your vehicle – you are not bulletproof!
