The sporting action continues in Lake Wanaka

Lake Wanaka, 4 February 2013 – The Kathmandu Riverrun Trail Series is gearing up for race two of the four race trail running series taking place on Saturday 16 February offering a 13km trail run on the Clutha River Track starting in Albert Town and crossing the finish line near Luggate.

With Challenge Wanaka done and dusted, the race offers runners the perfect opportunity to maintain fitness whilst stepping training down a notch. Race Director Victoria-Murray Orr believes it is the perfect Saturday morning run and encourages runners of all abilities and ages to get involved.
