New for 2016 the run is now a full half marathon. There is also a 10km run as well, and we also have the always popular option of walking instead of running. The run (or walk) takes place in magnificent Mackenzie Country scenery. The well marked course allows competitors of all ages and abilities to enjoy the mountains (without climbing any really big ones!) tussock flats, matagouri fringed trails and clear mountain rivers of the High Country.

As well as DOC land, the run also traverses a couple of iconic high country stations - Ben Ohau and Omahau Downs. The start/finish area is in one of the home paddocks of Simon and Priscilla Cameron’s Ben Ohau Station.

Although suitable for a range of ages, the course is challanging for the competitive amongst you with over 200 metres gain in elevation from the start to the high point over the Pyramid Saddle and crossings of Darts Bush and Fraser Streams. However the gentle descent on 4WD tracks in the latter half of the race is a delight and gives you a chance to really wind it up.
