Waitomo Trail Run

The Waitomo Trail Run is a true New Zealand underground and overground adventure, with explorers running or walking over and under landscape that has to be seen to be believed.

With surreal karst-studded landscapes, caves, native bush, vibrant working farms, tunnels, canyons and glowworms, it's as magical as you can possibly get. The courses have plenty of adventure and less-adventurous options, guaranteeing something for everyone. Everyone will have the chance to explore underground as well as hidden gems tucked away on private properties. The scenery is simply breathtaking
