Southland/Otago

Cancelled Run/Walk Off Road/Trail Superlong

The Routeburn Classic on Saturday, 28 April 2018 is an annual 32km off road adventure run on the Routeburn Track in Fiordland, New Zealand.

The 2018 event was cancelled on the day due to heavy snow.

It is limited to 350 entrants only and is is a point to point off road course starting at Milford Rd and ending at Routeburn Shelter.

Set in a New Zealand National Park and inside a World Heritage Area in Fiordland on the south west of New Zealand's South Island, the event encompasses changing terrain from lush native bush to an exposed alpine environment.

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. The descent back to native forest follows river and waterfalls to the finish line.
