The 2020 Tararua Mountain Race will again pit hardy competitors against the elements of the Southern Crossing, from Kaitoke to Otaki Forks.

This race traverses the Southern Crossing tramping route which is the classic Tararua route from Kaitoke to Otaki Forks, transforming the 3-day hard tramp into a 1-day mountain run of epic proportions.
