Urban Enduro

The Urban Enduro 2014 is to be held in Wellington City from the 25th to the 27th of April.

The Urban Enduro will be New Zealands first urban orienteering event using "enduro" course planning concepts with timed and untimed sections. These will allow competitors to make full use at high speed of technical navigation areas in the city centre and urban fringe.

The Urban Enduro will take competitors on three unique journeys around Wellington. Each day competitors can expect up to 60 minutes of race speed orienteering challenges, within a journey of several hours that will encompass some of the scenic highlights of our Capital city. There will be moments for extreme downhill orienteering and wickedly confusing urban navigation madness, but also moments for refuelling at a cafe or sitting on the beach with your friends and rivals.

The Urban Enduro will make use of several amazing areas new to orienteering, as well as those used once before for the New Zealand World Cup sprint races in 2013, and other more established local areas. The vision of the Urban Enduro organisers is to have the entirety of the natural "ampitheatre" of Wellington mapped to International Sprint Distance specifications by the end of 2014

The Urban Enduro will be a carbon friendly event  with public transport recommended to travel to and from the competition. In 2014 each day will start in the Wellington Central Railway Station with public transport available back to this point from the finish. The Railway Station is easily accessible by public transport from Wellington Airport.
