Officially now my most favorite race in the WORLD!
The marathon distance mountain trail with about 2400m vertical is one of the toughest but most rewarding race I have done. You are surrounded only by mountains, your shadow and the odd merino sheep. You run through native forests, along historical gold mining trails, over untouched summits, on exposed exciting ridge lines, splash in waterfalls and pure river beds.
Check out the website for results, gallery and information on the other races (30km, 21km, 10km and 5km – something for everyone) for you to enter next year!
Here are some pictures that cannot do this race justice but it is a start!
