Tararua Mountain Race 2018 Results


Please note splits for teams at Alpha are missing.  We hope to get these added soon.

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! 


Traditionally the race is held over the Southern Crossing.  From 2014 a new route was introduced as an alternative course along the river valleys between Kaitoke and Holdsworth - another classic Tararua tramping route.
