Welcome to the WUU-2K 42km Trail Marathon/60km Ultra-Marathon/Team Relay
The wellington urban ultra 2k Saturday July 15th 2017
Welcome to the WUU-2K!
The WUU2K (pronounced 'Woo-Too-Kay') or 'Wellington Urban Ultra 2K', is a trail-running endurance event around the hills that surround the capital city of New Zealand. Included in the event is a 42km marathon, as well as a 60km Ultra-Marathon. There will also be a relay teams event, new for 2017. Oh, and the '2k' stands for the elevation over the 42km race, which is closer to 3k for the 6okm.
The race is run in Mid-Winter, and for 2017 will see 300 runners take on the tough course around the Capital. There is a mix of terrain including single-track, mountain-bike trails, rocky roads, and of course - many, many hills.
'Why should I enter this?'
Life is a challenge. In life we accept this fact. For an event like this where training is an essential ingredient, life flows along parallel to this. We train for life, so running this event is like an essential part of the learning curve of life. Challenge yourself to achieve the somewhat unachievable....and reap the rewards.
