The Possum is a trail night run on the shortest day and darkest night (22 June 2019) - experience the Wairakei Resort, Craters Mountain Bike Park, and Craters of the Moon Geothermal Walkway at night!
Running or walking at night is awesome and the trails lined up for you are super fun. The Craters of the Moon geothermal walkway is a real treat where you get to run or walk through a geothermal wonderland. There will be steam from the ground and probably steam from your body as you take on the ups and downs, gulleys, ridges and bridges.
Glow sticks and reflective course markings will light the path to follow and marshals at key locations will keep you on course and provide lots of encouragement.
After the big night out, grab some dinner from the menu offered by the Wairakei Resort and soak in a geothermal hot pool to warm up and relax.
