Welcome to the WUU-2K 43km Trail Marathon/62km Ultra-Marathon/Team Relay
The wellington urban ultra 2k
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 43km marathon, as well as a 62km Ultra-Marathon. There will also be a relay teams event, new for 2017. 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 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. 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.
'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.
