Title: Mangatangi Trig
Post by: Claire Bear on October 04, 2009, 10:05:22 AM
Today I climbed Mangatangi from the Upper Mangitauwhiri Dam. We were climbing it to train for the Lactic Turkey Greatest little fun run in November. The road starts flat for about 3km and then the next 3km it gets steep. There wasn't much of a view because we were in the clouds. It was easy down because it was either down hill or flat. We ran most of it. It was fun going down because we could run. I ran all of it when we were going down. Only a couple of times i stopped.  :) :D
