Routeburn Classic

Staged in late April annually it is an exclusive event and limited to 350 lucky athletes.

The track is 32 Kilometers long and climbs to 1127meters above sea level. Traversing through two New Zealand National Park and a World Heritage Area in Fiordland encompassing changing terrain from lush native bush to an exposed alpine environment. The descend back to native forrest following rivers and waterfalls to the finish line. In sections it appears the track has been cut by nature rather than by man. There are some aggressive up hill climbs and a challenging technical down hill. The track for the most part is technical in nature with rocks and tree roots all a part of the challenge.

Fiordland is renowned for its tough weather and you will be exposed to the extreme elements. This has meant snow, ice and not so tropical intense rain in past years giving athletes a good test in wilderness conditions. The sun has been known to make guest appearances at the Classic but our athletes are prepared for the treatment.

This is a true adventure run. If you like a challenge, a feeling of isolation and running through areas and landscapes straight from a post card or fantasy novel then you're in the right place.

The Routeburn Classic will be an experience you will remember and talk about for the rest of your life!
