The 16th anniversary event of the Goat Adventure Run is on Saturday, 7 December 2019; this exhilarating adventure run is from Whakapapa to Turoa Ski Fields on the Round the Mountain track.
The approximately 20km course has over 1000m of captivating vertical ascent through a whole bunch of amazing terrain, and is a demanding yet achievable run that is widely acclaimed as one of New Zealand's premier off road running events.
Participants will experience stunning scenery ranging from ancient lava flows and scoria fields, mountain beech forest, tussock grasslands and alpine herbfields to cascading waterfalls, an alpine lake, boulder strewn rivers and amazing panoramic views, all set in a Dual World Heritage Area; the Tongariro National Park.
The Goat is limited to 600 entries and sells out in less than half an hour when entries open. See also The Big Kid Adventure Run, which is being run on the same day in 2019.
