Tussock Traverse 2015 proudly supported by Hoka One One New Zealand

January 19, 2015

The 2015 edition of the Tussock Traverse is set to take place this Saturday January 24th.   

The event which caters to both keen trail runners and walkers, as well as people new to the excitement of off-road adventures, is raced on one of the most scenic and varied courses in New Zealand. Event options include a 26km run/walk; 13km run/walk or a 6km run/walk with all event options finishing at the iconic Chateau Tongariro for a well deserved rest and post-race BBQ. This will also be the site of the event pre-registration and event prize giving.
The event course cuts across the heart of the World Heritage Tongariro National Park, starting off at the Desert Road on the Eastern side of the Park and takes in the Rangipo Desert and Waihohonu traverse track before finishing at the Chateau Tongariro in Whakapapa to the West. The 26km run/walk course begins approximately 6kms up the Tukino Road in the Rangipo Desert (entrance off the Desert Road, SH1) with a long hard climb straight up initially.  From there it's a mixture of rock hopping, lava fields, desert, alpine track (the views are amazing), and beech forest before finishing beside the Chateau Tongariro.  The 13km and 6.5km options will both start and loop back to the event finish line here.

Hoka One One footwear will be available for purchase on both Friday the 24th at the Event Registration as well as on Race Day itself. Plus, we'll also have the demo-fleet there for you put to the test.
