The famous Motatapu Marathon and 15km Run/Walk is known to be one of New Zealands best ever off road events- and that is really saying something!
'This event takes you on an iconic off-road course through the magnificent Motatapu, Soho and Glencoe Stations, which, thanks to the owners, are opened once a year to the public for this event.
You will go through numerous river crossings, climb some hills, overcome your own personal challenges and no doubt be awe struck with the spectacular views of these southern high country valleys.
First-time competitors say they will never run on-road again after completing the Motatapu Marathon!'
