The Trio


The 2018 North Range Trio offers three off-road events that cater to everyone’s needs. The popular North Range Traverse and Hall Block Humdinger return, again providing the popular distance options of 25km and 12.5km respectively, and we also see the return of the Manawatu’s only off-road ultra marathon, the Catchment Ultra 50km.

We are still finalising the course for the 2018 Catchment Ultra, but we are committed to providing you with a unique Tararua experience compete with sweeping views over the region. The Catchment Ultra will again offer you a once-a-year opportunity to run along South Range Road – a road not accessible to the public at any other time of the year..

Keen on going beyond the Half Marathon distance? Look no further than the North Range Traverse – a mostly downhill off-road run through the northern Tararua windfarms. The exposed vistas promise beautiful views, but also potential exposure to some challenging weather.

The shortest of the distances on offer, but don’t let that fool you. The run lives up to its name by challenging participants with a humdinger of an uphill for the first half, before you turn around and come screaming back down the hill to the finish.
