Tararua Mountain Race
Challenge yourself in one of the oldest mountain races in New Zealand


Welcome to our race!

The Tararua Mountain Race is one of New Zealand's oldest mountain races, having first been raced in 1990.   The Tararua Ranges are widenly renowned in New Zealand for tough mountain terrain and weather, so the race is not for the inexperienced or faint hearted!

The 2018 race will be held on:
