Revenant Ultra Run

Friday, 17 January 2020 to Sunday, 19 January 2020

Welcome Rock, Blackmore Station, Southland/Otago

Run/Walk Off Road/Trail Team

The Revenant is an unsupported individual or two person team Ultra Adventure Run from Friday, 17 January to Sunday, 19 January 2020.

The race is at Welcome Rock on Blackmore Station, straddling the border of Southland and Central Otago. The course covers a huge variety of terrain from alpine tussock land to Fiordland-like Beech forest. You'll be hot, you'll be cold, you'll get wet and have little time to sleep. It could even snow. You may not finish.

The course is 4 laps with a total race distance of 190km and over 16,000m of vertical ascent. The total allowable time is 60 hours, with a 30 hour cut off at the end of lap 2, and 45 hours at the end of lap 3.

This event has an unmarked course between a number of checkpoints that must be navigated and reached in sequence. There is a route choice between checkpoints; any navigational alternatives may increase overall distance and vertical climb. Navigation is by map and compass only. No GPS devices, altimeters or watches of any type are allowed.
