NEW RACE “Porters Pass Purgatory” With the intensive road works still progressing at Arthurs Pass denying us a chance in 2017 to run the Main Divide, we have taken the opportunity to develop a shortened version from Kirwee to finish at the summit of Porters Pass for the 50km “Porters Pass Purgatory”. With a total ascent of 921m culminating in the final 2.8km ascent of Porters Pass at an average gradient of 8.8% this is a rare opportunity to race one of the toughest climbs in the region. A must for all those who love the hills, and great training for those wanting to compete at the nationals. Watch the early break if you are a climber you may just find the all rounder’s steal the day. The lead into the climb is long enough to allow tactics to dominate. Huge prestige in winning this race.
