All events follow the famous Waiatarua routes (set in the Waitakere Ranges in West Auckland) previously used by Arthur Lydiard to train his prodigies - elite athletes such as Sir Peter Snell and Sir Murray Halberg, among others such as the Arch Jelley-trained Sir John Walker. Arthur's training courses are now world-renowned, and countless elite and not-so-elite athletes from many parts of the world have used them, and still do, as a key element of their training regimes and schedules.
