The first event in the Manawatu Moonlight Madness series takes place in Palmerston North on Wednesday, 11 July 2018, starting at the Paneiri Park parking area at the end of Maxwell's Line.
The route starts with an easy, open stretch, turning upstream along the river following an easy track before heading onto a section of well maintained walkways in lush Waitoetoe Park. Before the turn-off to Waitoetoe Park, long course participants continue further along the river for a loop around Dittmer Reserve and back. From Waitoetoe Park the course heads back past the start, and soon enter a maze of exciting twisty-turny single track paths on the way to the finish.
All finishers receive a high-quality, metal finishers medal. Do all events and collect all three the medals in the series!
