Bedrock50 - 52km Ultramarathon in Oxford, Canterbury

Saturday, 20 February 2016

Coopers Creek, Oxford, Canterbury

Cancelled Run/Walk Off Road/Trail

The Bedrock50 is an annual 52km trail ultramarathon in Oxford, Canterbury. The scenic route takes in the very popular Wharfdale and Blowhard tracks and passes through the stunning Lees Valley, starting at Coopers Creek and at Mt Richardson.

The event scheduled for February 20th 2016 was cancelled, with the current race organisers stepping down due to government bureaucracy and increased costs. It is unlikely to go ahead again in the future.

The event starts at Coopers Creek, a few minutes west of the North Canterbury township of Oxford. Runners initially follow a popular trail for 6km before linking with the Wharfdale track. After traversing the full length of the Wharfdale, competitors emerge into the Lees Valley and head north. The route then crosses private land as it ascends the western flank of Mt Richardson. The final leg of the route follows the Blowhard track down the eastern flank of Mt Richardson to the finish.
