This is a unique inner city navigation event where competitors run to, and up, Auckland’s iconic volcanoes, in any order that they choose.

This is the only event in the world that enables competitors to take in the rich heritage of spectacular and diverse multiple volcanic landforms in a fun and energetic way.

This is a mid-winter event that has grown significantly with runners keen for the thrill of combining endurance and navigation.

Auckland's volcanoes are iconic landscape features and of great cultural importance. Auckland City are committed to preserving, protecting and enhancing them for future generations to enjoy.

The signature event is the Auckland City Original Volcanoes Challenge which involves participants running or walking from One Tree Hill to and up the nominated volcanoes and checking in at the points on five of Auckland’s oldest and most popular volcanic sites – One Tree Hill, Mt Eden, Auckland Domain, Mt Hobson and Mt St Johns. This race has no pre-set course, its up to you which way you go to get to the 5 check points and it’s the quickest route wins.

In 2006, the Auckland City Classic Volcanoes Challenge was added which involves participants running from One Tree Hill to check in at points on seven of Auckland’s oldest and most popular volcanic sites. This event is a challenge to all those who have successfully completed the five volcanoes and still hunger for more.
