I'm a 55 year old citizen plodder who will make my first trip to NZ in June. I have long dreamed of trying the Waiatura route run by my boyhood heroes (Snell, Halberg, McGee, et al.) The route shown on the web site for "The Legend" race says it follows 75% of the original route through the Waitekeres. Can any of the NZ runners tell me how "The Legend" route differs from the original Waitarua route? Did Arthur Lydiard have his runners use One Tree Hill in Auckland for hill training? If so, how was One Tree Hill utilized? Thanks.
