The Loaded Taniwha on the Waikato River Trails
The Loaded Taniwha is a point to point trail run & mountain bike event on the Waikato River Trails, which celebrates the hard work of the Waikato River Trails Trust over the past 13 years in developing 100km of top quality trails - most of it on previously inaccessible land along the mighty Waikato River.
The trails wind their way through all the faces of New Zealand’s natural beauty - native bush, exotic forest, historic landmarks, geological formations, open reserves, boardwalks over wetlands, and stunning single track - taking in expansive lake and river views throughout.
There are 60km ultramarathon, 42km marathon, 21km half marathon, 14km and 7km trail run/walk events. The 60K can be run solo, or in a team relay of 2, 3 or 4 people.
Events start from various locations, and all finish at Whakamaru Christian Camp.
