Manawatu Moonlight Madness


The Manawatu Moonlight Madness is a fun, family-friendly and affordable nighttime trail running / walking series. Scheduled over three consecutive Wednesday nights, the series takes in Palmerston North, Levin and Ashhurst, for a showcase of awesome trails in the region.

The series starts with the New Moon Shenanigans, an exciting jaunt in Palmerston North, running next to the Manawatu river. Second up is the Half Moon Hoopla, an invigorating, hilly outing in the Kohitere Forest outside Levin. Finally, we head to Ashhurst for the Full Moon Folly, a fun, social saunter through the Ashhurst Domain trails, including a leg-stretch along the Manawatu river trail.

Locations: Palmerston North, Levin, Ashhurst
Event dates: 3, 10, 17 July 2019
