The Taupo Ultramarathon returns in 2017 with 50km, 74km and 100km ultramarathon events. There is also a 24km which, whilst not technically an ultra, gives those new to the sport a taste of the experience.
The Great Lake Trail 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. It is absolutely stunning and the Taupo Ultra offers a once-a-year opportunity where runners can access the Great Lake Trail uninterrupted, including access over private land.
A huge thanks to the land owners, trail builders, community organisations and many others who make this event possible.
100K Solo/Relay, 74K, 50K & 24K Trail Run/Walk
Each distance starts at different locations on the trail, with all events finishing in Whakaipo Bay, west of Taupo.
