Starting amongst ancient trees in Rotorua’s Redwood Forest and finishing river-side in Kawerau, the 102km point-to-point course takes runners on a journey through New Zealand’s best kept secrets with views of four beautiful lakes as well as breathtaking waterfalls and crystal-clear streams.

Presenting athletes with their ultimate challenge, the Tarawera Ultra is the second stop in the Ultra-Trail World Tour – a series of the 20 most prestigious ultra-running races in the world.
