        • 9th November 2013 Do you dream of running on a trail through heartland Queen Charlotte Sound Country, having been delivered to the starting line by boat? (13kms) Pedalling along one of the most scenic rides known to kiwi homosapeans, past the little holiday communities of Linkwater, Momorangi and Ngakuta Bays, your bike journey heads to the seaside village of Picton and its waterfront coffee houses… does that appeal? (40kms) Pedalling along one of the most scenic rides known to kiwi homosapeans Paddling on the blue waters of the inner Sounds, possibly passing a sunbathing seal, or catching a glimpse of a frolicking dolphin off the bow of your kayak…sound cool? (8kms) And after the day’s action a prize giving never to forget, in the ambience of the Allan Scott Family Winemakers cellar door establishment, with more spot prizes than you could have imagined. Want to just Run? Running a course from Lochmara Lodge on the Queen Charlotte track, taking you trail running through the bush to Anakiwa, is a run that compares with the toughest of half marathons. Though a smidgen shorter than a half marathon the climb out of Lochmara Lodge, after the starters’ gun fires, will challenge you like no normal half marathon will ever do (though the song of Bellbirds and Tuis will help you forget the pain!). You finish the 20kms at Anakiwa and we will not only drop you over to the start by Beachcomber Cruises but will pick you up at the finish (conditions apply). Live in the North Island? As proud long-time supporters, Bluebridge are keen to help North Islanders head South to attend the 2013 Queen Charlotte Classic so they’re giving all event competitors, supporters and their vehicles 50% off travel across Cook Strait.  Terms and conditions apply. Contact the event organisers on: 035735432 for the promotional code instructions so you can make your discounted online booking with Bluebridge once you have registered for the race.
