Oparara Wilderness Trail Run in Kahurangi National Park

The Pulse Energy Oparara Wilderness Trail Run returns in 2018, running through the Oparara Valley, Kahurangi National Park in Karamea, with 35km and 20km races.

You will run through regenerating native forest and a stunning, untouched rain forest dominated by huge rimu, totara and kahikatea dripping with moss and lichen and allowing only dappled light to reach the forest floor. Don't be surprised to see weka, black robins and other native birds along the track for this wilderness area is abundant with bird life!
