The best possible Ring of Fire experience is comprised of entering the race and staying at the historic and luxurious Chateau Tongariro which is the heart of the event village and start/finish line for the Ultra distance.  On race day it is simply a matter of rolling out of bed, lacing up your shoes, then opening the door to the start line.  Then once your big day out is done and dusted, you can celebrate with a few drinks in the on site bar and restaurant, before retiring to your bed for some much needed sleep.

Bookings at the Chateau will be open from Monday 10 July at 9:00am.
