About

The Tararua Mountain Race is one of New Zealand’s oldest mountain races, still going strong over 25 years later. The Tararua Ranges are widely renowned in New Zealand for tough mountain terrain and weather, so the race is not for the inexperienced. Traditionally the race is held over the Southern Crossing. From 2014 a new concept is being introduced with an alternative course being used every even year, and the traditional Southern Crossing used every odd year. The race will always be held on the second Saturday in March.

The 2017 Tararua Mountain Race will be on the classic route. Starting at Kaitoke, over the Marchant Ridge, to Alpha Hut, then the Dress Circle, Mt Hector, down to Kime and Field Hut with a finish at Otaki Forks in the sunshine.
