Kia Ora. Welcome to Tarawera Ultramarathon by UTMB.
Tarawera Ultramarathon by UTMB is an iconic trail running event held in Rotorua, New Zealand’s birthplace of tourism. Join us for the 14th edition on Saturday 11th February 2023.
Our spectacular courses take in the most stunning scenery imaginable, featuring eight different lakes, waterfalls, and the lushest native New Zealand forests.
Whether you choose the TUM21, Bachcare TUM50, TUM102 or the TUMMiler, our friendly trail running community welcomes athletes of all abilities with open arms. Courses are all point-to-point, on mostly non-technical runnable terrain. They are designed with the aim of seeing everyone succeed.
Tarawera Ultramarathon by UTMB is part of the UTMB World Series, attracting some of the world’s best elite trail runners. The TUM102 and the TUMMiler are both qualification races for the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run, with the TUM102 carrying a golden ticket entry. All distances carry the opportunity to earn Running Stones towards qualifying for UTMB Mont Blanc.
