Tarawera Ultramarathon is an iconic trail running event held in Rotorua, New Zealand’s birthplace of tourism. Their spectacular courses take in the most stunning scenery imaginable, featuring eight different lakes, waterfalls, and the lushest native New Zealand forests.
Whether you choose 21km, 50km, 102km or the 100 Miler, our friendly trail running community welcomes athletes of all abilities with open arms. Courses are all point-to-point, on mostly non-technical runnable terrain. They are designed with the aim of seeing everyone succeed.
Tarawera Ultramarathon is part of the Ultra-Trail World Tour, attracting some of the world’s best elite trail runners. The 102km and the 100 Miler are both qualification races for the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run. The 50km, 102km and the 100 Miler are qualifying races for UTMB races.
