The King & Queen of the Mountain is a brand new mountain running event this year, scheduled to run January 8th 2022. This is for all of you runners who love a good blood-pumping elevation gain, and relish in the final steps to the finish. 

Is it a race, a scramble or a grunt? Actually it's all three. Although a short distance measuring at 1.45km, it's best described as a hill sprint. 

Starting from the base area in waves, it'll be first to the summit, running the most direct route up across tussock, rock and shrubs.  

In this first year we are planning on running four waves:

  1. Junior (U18) Women and Men
  2. Open Women and Men

Up for the challenge? Registrations are open from November.
