“The Jumbo Holdsworth classic loop (anti-clockwise).”— Kerry Suter
Featured Race - Jan 26, 2019
Always take warm clothing and prepare for alpine conditions. It is rarely calm and dry on the Tararua tops.
The run proceeds through Donnelly's Flat to join the undulating Atiwhakatu Track to Atiwhakatu Hut (7.5km). From here, a steep ascent commences via the Raingauge Spur Track to reach Jumbo Hut (10km), 1105m before continuing on to reach the Jumbo summit - 1405m.
At the summit, runners make a left turn at the marshalled sign to head south along the undulating main range to Mt Holdsworth Trig (14km) 1470m. From the Trig, runners turn left again to commence the descent via Powell Hut (15.7km) 1160m to Holdsworth Lodge and the finish line via the well-graded Gentle Annie Track.
