Post-1993 Men’s record*
Pre-1993 Men’s record*
Complete one full circuit (aprox 45km) of the Around the Mountain Track starting from any point on the track traveling either clockwise or anticlockwise.
This track has alternative upper and lower routes in a few places and any are valid for the record. For example you could go via Kahui Hut or the Kapoaiaia track, or take the upper or lower Lake Dive Track, or the lower Curtis Falls/Makatawa track.
A suggested route might be:
North Egmont – Holly Hut – Waiaua Gorge – Brames Falls – Upper Lake Dive – Dawson Falls – Stratford Plateau – North Egmont.
Warning: The upper tracks are suitable for speed records in summer only.
An official timekeeper is suggested at the start/finish.
