Dun Run Course Alteration

Change to the course due to a slip on the Third House to Four Corners section of the Dun Mt Trail

We have been informed by Nelson City Council that with recent heavy rain, a slip on the Third House to Four Corners section of the Dun Mt trail is unpassable. As such we have arranged an alternative diversion.

From Coppermine Saddle you will continue around past Windy Point and back into the tree line towards Third House as per the normal course, however, at the Junction Saddle, (approx 3.5km from Windy Point) you will take the Black Diamond Track to the Right through to Fringed Hill (approx 2.5km).

At Fringed Hill you will be greeted by our crew who will guide you down the Road to join onto the Classic. This downhill track will wind down the hill side (2.7km) until you join back onto the Dun Mt track at Four Corners (Cummins Spur. From here you will continue down, on the same course as normal.

This deviation will add approx 1km more to the course with some additional climbing. This track is rugged, and requires concentration. Be prepared for a longer journey despite the similar distance. However on the plus side, the Fringed Hill Checkpoint will offer you amazing views over Nelson and the Tasman Bay (weather dependant).

We will provide an additional Aid Station with Water, Heed supplement and sugar lollies at the Fringed Hil Checkpoint.

It is important that you follow Track Markings as per below
