The Ruapehu Ring of Fire returns for a second year on Saturday, 23 March 2019; this challenging and exhilarating alpine adventure running event has a unique combination of terrain, distance, altitude and views.
The circumnavigation of the majestic Mount Ruapehu will challenge competitors physically, mentally and spiritually. It will be tough and uncompromising, but in the end, one of the most authentic sporting experiences available in New Zealand.
Participants will be treated to a mix of desert, scoria and lava fields, stunning native bush, scraggy tussock desert like terrain, crystal clear mountain streams as well as breath taking climbs and expansive views of one of the most treasured landscapes of Aotearoa New Zealand.
