Rapaki Pick Up 30th April 2017
Rapaki Pick up is a fun challenge for everyone. (Get the blokes around you to join in). The goal is to walk, run or combination of both (on foot - no pedal power!) up and down Rapaki Track (approximately 7km).
Enter as an individual or make it a Family Challenge. This is not about how fast you can go - the twist is what time do you think you can complete the distance in....
The rules of Rapaki Pick Up are simple:
1. You estimate the time it will take you or your team to walk or run or combination of both (all on foot - no pedal power) from the start of Rapaki Track (at the end of Rapaki Rd) to the top (gate before the Summit Rd) and back to the start/finish.
2. You leave all recording devices behind! - No cell phones, No GPS, No watch, No Heart Rate Monitors....absolutely none. Just you and the track.
3. The winner is the person or team closest to their estimated time.
4. Fun and smiles are compulsory.
There will be placing and spot prizes. Prizegiving will be at the Port Hills Athletic Club in Hansen Park as soon as everyone has finished. Tea/coffee supplied.
There will be marshals, tail end crew and medical on the track during the event.
