Queenstown Mountain Run / NZ Mountain Running Champs

The Queenstown Mountain Run incorporates the New Zealand Mountain Running Championships and takes place on Ben Lomond in the heart of Queenstown.

The nature of this mountain running event is for the runners to follow a point to point course and finishing at respective high points... Who goes up - must come down! Participants in each event will finish at their designated high point and once crossing the finish line collect their gear bags and slowly walk or jog back down to the top of the Skyline Gondola where the athlete gathering and prize giving takes place whilst cheering on fellow competitors.
