The Ultra Easy & Big Easy Mountain Runs on Saturday, 27 January 2018 are a 106km ultra run, 42km marathon and 13km river run, based out of the Albert Town Tavern in Wanaka.
The 100km run can be run solo or as part of a 5-leg team relay.
The "Big Easy" name stems from the original idea of a "big easy" mountain bike race (to buck the trend of all the "challenges" and "epics" out there. People then asked to run it so the Big Easy Mountain Marathon was added.
Recently the 106k option was added and the organisers are sticking with the "Easy" theme, hence the "Ultra Easy" 106k, etc...
The Big Easy & Lil Easy MTB races are held on the same day.
