The Kaiwaka Sports Association's seventh annual multi-sport event, the Top of the Rock, will be held on Sunday February 12. The event caters for walkers, runners and mountain bikers, both recreational and competitive, with a range of options: 5km or 11km walk or run; 10km run & 15km mountain bike ride; 10km or 30km mountain bike route; plus a fun bike course for under 10 year olds – free!
Routes travel through some of Kaiwaka's most scenic countryside – bush, lakes and farmland – and you get the opportunity to climb iconic Baldrock via a well-formed track which spirals around the mountain.
Don’t worry about fitness levels – there is no time limit for events. Marshalls will taxi stragglers if necessary. The event is open to all ages, from pre-school up.
Prizes are presented for placegetters as well as lots of great spot prizes, including a mountain bike.
Organisers hope to build on the more than 400 entrants from last year’s event.
