Report by Don Willoughby
Over the last year new natural running surfaces around Cambridge have become very common and runners and walkers are well served by a great variety of terrain. Over its 25 year history the Cambridge Tree Trust has built 21kms of riverside tracks and trails. These walking tracks can be viewed on the website www.treetrust.org.nz.
Through the work of the Cambridge Tree Trust there are 23 kms of running trails around Cambridge and especially along the Waikato River. These are regularly run by Kent and Kerry and off road training is a feature of the Tri NZ programme.
