Powder Ridge Punisher & Chalkies Challenge

Sunday, 15 October 2017

Silverstream Valley Road, Dunedin

Run/Walk Off Road/Trail

The Powder Ridge Punisher & Chalkies Challenge are epic mountain trail runs on Sunday, 15 October 2017 just out of Dunedin.

The Powder Ridge Punisher is 24 km of epic trail running, consisting of brutal technical climbs (30%+ gradient in sections), lightening fast 4WD track, technical single track descent & river crossings. Welcome to the pain cave!

The Chalkies Challenge could potentially be the hardest 6-7km of your life! The downs could almost be as slow as the ups. This is less a run than an adventure loop. There are some steep slippery rope sections, rocky river crossings, narrow steep benched track including the infamous "bullet gully section" with descents of 35-40% gradient. If the sound of getting your feet wet, navigating slippery rocks, pulling yourself up a steep hill via ropes, holding onto tree branches descending, losing your balance multiple times scares you then this is not the event for you...
