The Bell Hill Challenge on Saturday, 3 November 2018 is a trail run and walk at Baldoon Farm in the Selwyn Plantation Block, approx 60k west of Christchurch.
At 960m high, Bell Hill summit can be seen from every angle in the surrounding region and once on top the view stretches for more than 30 kilometres in all directions. Situated close to the West Coast Road, it was used as a landmark when travellers blazed a trail from Canterbury toward the West Coast.
These events head up to Bell Hill summit, before continuing on a loop on tussock ridges and forestry tracks above the Selwyn River back blocks. The course is steep in places, taking in farm land, 4WD drive tracks and single-track.
