About the GRAM

Everything you need to know about the Geraldine Rogaine Autumn Muster

GRAM 2017 will be in the scenic South Canterbury foothills near Woodbury. The terrain is rolling to moderately steep open farmland with native and plantation forest and scrub in the valleys. There are spectacular views from higher ground. Some lower valleys are deeply incised and affect navigation. Deer-fenced areas will be out-of-bounds. Team members will need to be prepared for any weather conditions. Some teams are very competitive. However, most teams enter to enjoy the scenery, new terrain, fresh air and exercise.

There are three choices for teams: six-hours for experienced and fit teams; three-hours for less experienced teams; and a one-hour event for children and novices.
