1. Run around an active volcano.

In Aotearoa, at the bottom of the Pacific Ring of Fire. It doesn’t get much more extraordinary than this folks!

2. Your Body & Mind

Will be taken to an extraordinary place during this ultimate mountain adventure run. It will elevate your heart rate, feel muscles you didnt think you and fill your soul. Let the sun lift your spirit as it emerges over the spectacular central plateau, cross crystal clear streams, boulder strewn rivers, alpine herb fields , climb cascading waterfalls, reflect in an alpine tarn, traverse ancient lava flows and scoria fields then single track through deep mountain beech forest before entering a volcanic lunar like desert landscape on your way to the finish. We know you will redefine the limits of your physical and mental endurance.

3. Immerse yourself

In the natural and cultural wonderland that is the Tongariro National Park, a Dual World Heritage area. Share and learn from the tanagata whenua whose sacred lands we are privileged to pass through on the journey around the maunga.

4. Finish & Celebrate in Style

At the historic Chateau Tongariro Hotel & be part of the only race in the world that finishes in a 70 years plus ballroom on the red carpet underneath the chandeliers. How cool is that! Join in the party as we welcome home competitors through to the magic midnight hour.
