run events

8th-10th April 2022

For those new to trail running, this is your invitation to take on an exciting and inspiring challenge – and get a great yarn out of it. For experienced trail runners, this is a chance to write history as part of the first genuine trail festival on a mountain that already has a bucket-list-worthy reputation.

We have carefully curated each run route so they all celebrate the diversity of landscapes and culture of kunanyi in their own unique way.
