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.
