Taupo Ultramarathon

The Taupo Ultramarathon is a new event for 2016 with 50km, 74km and 100km ultramarathon events. There is also a 24km "mini ultra" to give people the chance to trial the ultra experience, and the 100km can be run solo or as part of a 2, 3 or 4 person team relay.

The event is run on The Great Lake Trail, and is literally an epic journey that showcases the very best of what the Great Lake Taupo region has to offer - New Zealand's largest lake, mountain ranges, rivers, waterfalls and native forest
