The Tarawera Ultramarathon on Saturday, 9 February 2019 is New Zealand's most prestigious ultramarathon and is part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour.
There are some big changes in 2019, with a 20km run on Friday, the introduction of a 50km run, and the 62km & 87km no longer being run.
The spectacular course runs through places of cultural significance to local Māori people. Around 2000 participants with more than 800 international athletes will compete. Some of the world’s best elite trail ultra runners take part. This event is a great first-time challenge!
