WINTER SOLSTICE RUN AND PLUNGE(NOT SWIM!!)

Thats right its on again-the 3rd year. Check out info and previous results. Its the stuff legends are made of. Run swim and don't forget the standard beer at Hop Garden after at 7 pm


Distance: Just under 3km.


Elevation: Start and finish at 3m, turn around at 178m


WHAT YOU DO!!!: Start from Freyberg Beach, Oriental Bay, Wellington, run to the
lookout at the summit of Mt Victoria BY ANY ROUTE YOU CHOOSE touch the rock in
the middle of the lookout then return to Freyberg Beach by any route, run into
the sea and submerge yourself!!!, head included, then run back up the beach to the
finish line. ....


Solstice Extreme: Earn yourself a 40 second time bonus by doing the
dip in the nude! Just the dip, not the run. We don't want people getting
arrested.

impt!!

Some people thought it was a swim all you have to do is jump in water and jump out-head under tho! To be honest I have done it twice and after running its not too bad...Bit like summer temp.

Meet 5 45 Freyburg Pool run start 6 pm.

    I got roped into a lunchtime plunge so I might just join you all after, water's lovely ;)

    Well, I can vouch for the pool at work being suitably bracing this lunchtime...hopefully the sea will be a little warmer this evening!

    June 19, 2014

    • ewa k.

    Yo! the solstice madness tomorrow! If you need to drop a bag, there'll be several cars and boots available :-) just catch Chris Martin or ask around - and bring a change of clothes unless you're happy to hang around the bar in smelly wet clothes :-) we won't mind.

    You can take a shower in Freyburg after they charge a dollar or something i think

    Also this year we taking a gold coin donation for Aorangi Trust. We will collect before race and at pub after race if you don't have time before

    Don't forget to bring head torch if you have them. If not a torch would be handy for track finding..Everyone finds their own route to Mt Vic and down...and the tracks are faster than the road..

      As long as a storm hasn't brought down a load of trees like last year :-)

    As a discussion point what do you think the nudie time bonus should be? 10 s is not enough eh

    May 19, 2014

    • Cathal R.

      Wasn't it 40s last year? Think that was alright.

      May 19, 2014

    • Chris M.

      sounds about right...20 s extra to get changed? so effectively a 20s bonus...and of course the bonus of teh pleasure of the nudie dip

    Loved this last year just wish I'd invested in some stripper pants to get off in a timely fashion ;-)

    Oh the actual shortest day is Sat but its the Wellingon marathon and half etc on Sunday so we moved it a day forward

    April 15, 2014

    • Dominic S.

      Yeah, it's two days before I do the Welly half...so shenanigans will probably be curtailed, but what the hell, why not!
