Trail Description:

A high speed trail with technical jump sections to keep you on your toes, ending with 8 big inter linking berms to finish on a high note. Built by Ryan Lovett and Martin Connell of Andrew Younger Contracting, June 2017

Trail name origin: Raruraru (Rah-roo-rah-roo )

Part of our human experience on this planet will include conflict, problems and the usual drama of life. Maori refer to this as raruraru. However, as we are all here to grow and evolve, the software built in to our DNA, is available to help with the development of infinite solutions. Life’s challenges are very real but when your mind overcomes the matter, things get easier and your life force quotient accelerates tenfold. Remember, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel
