Staged in late April annually it is an exclusive event and limited to 350 lucky athletes.
The track is 32 Kilometers long and climbs to 1127meters above sea level. Traversing through two New Zealand National Park and a World Heritage Area in Fiordland encompassing changing terrain from lush native bush to an exposed alpine environment. The descend back to native forrest following rivers and waterfalls to the finish line. In sections it appears the track has been cut by nature rather than by man. There are some aggressive up hill climbs and a challenging technical down hill. The track for the most part is technical in nature with rocks and tree roots all a part of the challenge.- See more at: http://www.queenstownnz.co.nz/information/eventDetail/index.cfm?eID=221&occID=1175#sthash.H5DIBpYU.dpuf
This is a true adventure run. If you like a challenge, a feeling of isolation and running through areas landscapes straight from a post card or fantasy novel then you are in the right place!
Set in two stunning National Parks which are also part of Te Wahi Pounamu World Heritage Site. This 32 kilometre race is limited to just 350 lucky athletes. Reaching a high point of 1127 metres above sea level; this adventure run is simply breathtaking. From virgin native Beech forests, to alpine vistas and high alpine tarns. A great challenge and accomplishment for anyone taking part.
