The FIX Tussock Traverse is an alpine adventure run and walk with 26km, 13km and 6.5km options. It cuts across the heart of the World Heritage Tongariro National Park, starting off the Desert Road on the Eastern side of the Park and taking in the Rangipo Desert and Waihohonu traverse track before finishing at the Chateau Tongariro in Whakapapa to the West.
