Our runs are planned to use roads we might not usually travel on. All the roads are sealed and of good surface.

As Planners we check that all the roads are safe for all entrants vehicles. This year after checking the planned run in our Model A's we as a team have to strongly recommend that to travel safely on the Gentle Annie section of the run from Ohakune to Hawkes Bay, you need a 4 wheel rake vehicle. There are very steep inclines and equally steep deciles, causing us to give this advice. 2 wheeled brake vehicles can easily manage the rest of the run and you are welcome to join en route. 

 

If you wish to join us, we need entry numbers by 20th January 2018. Also please let us know your vehicle of choice (A modern if necessary)
