There Will Be A ROF in 2022

The event industry has changed considerably with the emergence of the ‘virus that shall not be named’, and Victory Events have rolled with the punches and come up with options to ensure that there will be a ROF in 2022… no matter what! Get behind Victory Events, so you can get in front of the pack on race day!

Will it be:

  • The Physical Event (A.K.A. the Real Deal Ring of Fire and Tussock Traverse courses)
  • The Modified Physical Event
  • The Virtual Event

No one on planet earth knows the answer to this question, and while we hope for the best, we plan for everything!

 

1 – The Physical Event (A.K.A. the Real Deal Ring of Fire and Tussock Traverse courses) – BRING IT ON!

2 – The Modified Physical Event

Scenarios like severe weather warmings, road closures etc may modify/delay/shorten/re-route, or stop some aspects of the planned event for some entrants.

The modified event may involve one of our contingency courses and/or other health and safety measures. The event team will look after all the detail and clearly communicate with you. Just come and enjoy yourself! In these scenarios, there will still be an event in the stunning Tongariro National Park.

3 – The Virtual Event

A Virtual ROF would look like this:


  • Start your adventure as early as needed in order to finish your Virtual ROF by 6.00pm (some 73km entrants may wish to tackle the distance the day prior)
  • Give us a full ‘run down’ of your adventure by 7.00pm (if a Virtual event is called for, we will communicate everything with you in race week)
  • View the live prizegiving held at 8.00pm.
  • The same pool of prizes will be awarded to entrants but in a different way (i.e. more prizes for the most stunning run options, the most creative run options, the longest run, the best on-course selfie photos as selected by Photos4Sale, highest elevation stats run, the run that most closely matches the course profiles, prizes for best dressed etc.
  • Post-event, sit by your post box! Your Ring of Fire (ring or medal) will arrive complete with your event gift. Oh, and if you’ve won a spot prize it will arrive at the same time too!
  • P.S If we need to switch your entry into the Virtual event prior to 11.59pm on Tuesday of race week, both your bus and dinner tickets are 100% refundable.
  • If we need to switch your entry into the Virtual event at any stage leading up to the event, you will receive a partial event credit and priority entry into the 2023 Ring of Fire event!
