Kia ora koutou katoa, and welcome to the WUU2K 2018, thank you for your interest in the 2018 event.
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 43km marathon, as well as a 62km Ultra-Marathon. There is also a teams relay event. Oh, and the '2k' stands for the elevation over the 43km race, which is closer to 3k for the 62km.
The race is run in Mid-Winter, and for 2018 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. This is a challenging course. Please only enter if you are up for the challenge! Read the race blogs for an idea of what to expect. The 62km event is now part of qualifying for the UTMB, and all finishers will receive 3 points towards their total. The 62km course is also listed on the ITRA, and finishers receive 3 points towards this also.
NEW FOR 2018! Beat the 62km course Record (5:16:04 by Sam McCutcheon) and get FREE ENTRY for yourself into the WUU2K for the life of the event!
'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.
