Course Details

5 Unique events in beautiful Motatapu, Queenstown New Zealand.

The course follows a spectacular loop from Arrowtown, ascending the historic Tobin's Track up onto the Crown Terrace before entering the magnificent Glencoe Station (water and toilet location). You’ll pass historic ruins of a miner’s cottage as you climb to the Aid Station at 6.5km. From here, the course continues up the tussock covered hillside ascending to the high point at 1047m and a breath-taking view of the Wakatipu Basin. The trail narrows to a single track as it cuts across the top of the mountain heading towards the big descent of the race.  The next couple kilometres zig-zag down towards the Arrow River on a rough, disused farm track. With 4km to go Miners Trail runners meet the Macetown Track and connect up with the Off-Road Marathon, Ultra & Mountain Bike course for the final push to the finish. 

This is a mountain-style course with varied terrain underfoot including farm track, backcountry single track and with short sections of steep ascent/descent. Not to mention the 11 river crossings that greet you in your final couple KMs! This will be a spectacular race that you won’t soon forget.

Get off-road and into the hills – you have a challenge ahead of you!
