Routeburn Classic Adventure Run - EVENT CANCELLED

Run, Trail Run
Te Anau Southland
$230. Entries open on the 3rd of February 2020 32km

The Routeburn Classic Adventure Run 2020 event has been cancelled due to a weather event causing significant damage to the track. Please refer to website for more information. 

The Routeburn Classic Adventure Run held in late April annually 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 Parks and a World Heritage Area in Fiordland encompassing changing terrain from lush native bush to an exposed alpine environment. The descent back to native forest follows 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!
