About

The Motatapu Ultra traverses the absolutely stunning ridges and valleys of the Harris Mountain Range between Wanaka and Arrowtown. The track covers 51km of exposed and physically challenging back-country terrain across the Motatapu and Soho Stations on an old travellers’ route that is steeped in New Zealand history. You will make your way over four peaks (the highest point being 1275m), and negotiate rough tussock-covered areas, long, steep saddles and river crossings.

This is a multi-sports event, which offers various swimming, mountain biking and running courses, including the 15k, 42k, and 51k running-only events.
