The Crater Rim will also be the first race I have done since the Routeburn Classic in May, not counting the Skin to the Summit, which I did on heavy gear, so I didn't really feel like I was racing that day.

There is a 30km and a 20km race, both starting from St Martin's School, climbing up to the summit road and heading towards the Sign of the Kiwi. I am opting for the 20km race as I have only got back into running regularly for a month or so now. Going off my training times I think I can go under 2 hours pretty easily and will be shooting for lower than 1hr40mins.
30km starts at 8am, 20km at 0830, see you on the start line!
