The Taupo Ultramarathon returns in 2017 on Saturday, 14 October with 50km, 74km and 100km ultramarathon events.
There is also a 24km which, whilst not technically an ultra, gives those new to the sport a taste of the experience.
The Great Lake Trail an epic journey that showcases the very best of what the Great Lake Taupo region has to offer - New Zealand's largest lake, mountain ranges, rivers, waterfalls and native forest. It is absolutely stunning and the Taupo Ultra offers a once-a-year opportunity where runners can access the Great Lake Trail uninterrupted, including access over private land.
A huge thanks to the land owners, trail builders, community organisations and many others who make this event possible.
