The Molesworth Run - Event Cancelled

Run, Trail Run, Ultra Distance Run
Molesworth Station Nelson Marlborough Tasman
Prices to be confirmed, please refer to website. 84km

The Molesworth Run, due to take place on the 20th of November 2021, has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. 

The Molesworth Station is New Zealand's largest high country station and is located in the upper half of the South Island.

Our 84 km ultra- running event runs from the Molesworth Cob Cottage to Hanmer Springs through the Molesworth Station. The race can be done as a Solo-runner, in a Team of 2 or in a Team of 4 runners. This is the 25th running of this event. Something to celebrate.

From the start, the gravelled road climbs Ward Pass 1145 m and descends into Isolated Flat – 250 hectares of expansive grass and tussock lands, bounded by rolling mountains and massive scree slopes. Once at Red Gate, the road loosely follows the Acheron River through to the historic Acheron Accommodation house and the confluence of the Acheron and Clarence rivers. From here we follow the Clarence to Jack’s Pass – and from there into the North Canterbury town of Hanmer Springs – finishing in Chisholm Crescent: a total distance of 84 km.

This race is organised under the umbrella of the Marlborough Harrier Club Inc.
