The Tussock Traverse on Saturday, 25 January 2020 is an alpine adventure run and walk in Tongariro National Park.
It offers both keen trail runners and walkers, as well as people new to the excitement of off-road adventures, one of the most scenic and varied courses in New Zealand. The event is proud to support the ongoing work of Project Tongariro (Tongariro Natural History Society), and the great work they do conserving this spectacular area.
The new 32km and 21km options for 2020 from just inside SH1, cut across the heart of the World Heritage Tongariro National Park, before finishing at the Chateau Tongariro in Whakapapa.
The new 10km option and much loved 6km loop both start and finish line near the Chateau Tongariro.
