The most recent edition of this event was on 20 November 2016.
The Smiths Sports Shoes Tauranga Trail Run on Sunday, 23 November 2014 is a fundraising event for the Tauranga Boys' College Cross Country team, with 100% of profits going to local school groups.
The event takes place at the TECT All Terrain Park, located up Pyes Pa Road, only 25 minutes from downtown Tauranga.
The course is an interesting mixture of gravel road, 4WD access, MTB track and walking trail based around the awesome beauty of the Te Rerenga Track and Tunnel. The undulating loop sees participants cross beautiful streams and picturesque bridges, pass an impressive, mature rimu grove and reach a summit with breathtaking views across to Mt. Tarawera, Mt. Ngongotaha, Mt. Edgecumbe and Mt. Maunganui.
