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.
Each distance starts at different locations on the trail, with all events finishing in Whakaipo Bay, west of Taupo.
