2024 Trentham 5km Series

General Information:

The Trentham 5km Series is a 5 race series every second Tuesday from 30 January 2024 to Tuesday 26 March 2024.
The course is the same as for 2023 to avoid the carpark and therefore improve safety. It consists of four laps.
There will be a 1.6km larger lap followed by a 900m lap, repeating that pair to complete the 5km. The course is entirely inside of Trentham Memorial Park in Upper Hutt. The surface is concrete footpath and native bush track/gravel. It is very spectator and child friendly.
There are options of 2.5km (1 large and 1 small lap) and 5km (1 large and 1 small lap repeated).
Race results will be published on the home page and results page.
