Routeburn Track
fb Event Summary: 
The Routeburn Classic is an adventure run over the world renowned Routeburn Track traversing through a NZ national park. 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 1127 meters above sea level. Set in a New Zealand National Park 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. 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! When: Saturday 24 April Where: Routeburn Track Entries open Monday 1 February –
