The Santoft trails are sand based and provide a great all-weather surface during autumn and winter. The forest creates a micro-climate, which is warmer, sheltered and dry, so don't worry about the weather. The relay track is at the end of Raumai Rd, Bulls. See how to get there at the bottom of the page. New course for 2016.
