I'd like to add my thanks to C&D for a great walk, my first Wellington Boot. The triple challenge certificate was an added bonus and I'm quite proud of it!

Many thanks to all who made this such an enjoyable event. Having completed all previous Boots I can confirm that this one was without doubt the warmest and driest ever. Even the famous (infamous?) 2014 Wellington Monument mudslide was conspicuous by its absence.

Along with the excellent ground conditions the checkpoint support was superb throughout. The quality and quantity of food available make the Wellington Boot memorable for all the right reasons and I look forward to 2020!

Thanks for the detailed feedback Andrew

I just wanted to point out that the gpx file should not be relied upon soley and should be used in conjunction with the route description , map and compass.

Hope this helps

Look forward to seeing everyone on the day in Wellington, the weather looks great for a dry walk

Hi Andrew

The gpx file was created using a Suunto watch and view ranger.

If you would like one from the marshals event created with a Garmin please drop me an email.

Does anyone have a better GPX track than the version on the C&D web site?

Not a major issue, but on normal settings I am going to keep getting route alarms.

FWIW anyone who is planning on using just the GPX track could well have problems.
