An officially measured 42.2km course. A loop of the Hutt River plus an out and back all the way to Upper Hutt, which then returns to Petone.
From our interesting start by the boat sheds and along the board walk, you'll enjoy wide open spaces on gravel tracks through the golf course and up the river trail to Melling Bridge.
Once over the river you'll continue upstream on tarmac trails along the river past Fraser Park to Stokes Valley. Then you're back on to picturesque gravel tracks through copses of trees with the river in by your side past Trentham Memorial Park all the way to the turn at Riverstone Terraces.
Then it's downstream all the way on the eastern side of the river to the Waione pipe bridge in Petone to finish back at Race HQ.
