Well… you’re technically not running *on* Mt Taranaki, as the name might suggest. But… you get to look *at* the mighty mountain while you run! That is, if you can keep your eyes off the lake!
Situated only 10 minutes drive from New Plymouth, the Taranaki Off-Road Half Marathon course winds around a breathtaking 21km loop of the stunning Lake Mangamahoe. Runners will take in all the tracks, including the never-been-run-before Mountain Bike tracks! Along with the Half Marathon distance, runners could instead opt to tackle the slightly shorter, yet just as challenging, Quarter Marathon and 5km distances too.
