Navy Fields ... a hidden gem!
Event base is the magnificent Navy Fields at Ngataringa Bay and we are indebted to the New Zealand Navy for allowing us to use their marvelous facility. Navy Fields are tucked at the end of Ngataringa Bay Road and the huge playing fields are surrounded by a great road surface for running! As an additional bonus, the NZ Navy have granted us permission to park cars at one end of the playing fields meaning everyone can enjoy an easy park and short walk to the start line. Perfect!
