Ultra Easy 100km
The Ultra Easy & Big Easy Mountain Runs are a 100km ultra run, 42km marathon and 13km river run, based out of the Albert Town Tavern in Wanaka. The 100km run can be run solo or as part of a 5-leg team relay. The course runs over Mt. Iron, Roys Peak, Mt. Alpha, Little Criffel and Mt. Pisa. The “Big Easy” name stems from the original idea of a “big easy” mountain bike race to buck the trend of all the “challenges” and “epics” out there. People then asked to run it so the Big Easy Mountain Marathon was added. Recently the 100k option was added and the organisers are sticking with the “Easy” theme, hence the “Ultra Easy” 100k. However there is clearly nothing easy about this event, with the 100k event boasting 4700m of elevation gain alone but whatever you choose you will get to experience the beautiful Wanaka area of New Zealand.

The Hillary Ultra
The Trail follows a variety of terrain and scenery – many claim a magical pull of the trail and keep coming back for more. Stunning views throughout the trail, rugged West coast beaches, magnificent native bush including the hundreds of year old native Kauri trees. Past large waterfalls and sand dunes, along cliff tops or through marshlands – there is something for everyone. The 80km course follows the Hillary Trail from the Arataki Visitors Centre West of Titirangi all the way to Muriwai, via Huia, Whatipu, Karekare, Piha and Bethells. There is no denying, this is a tough challenge – mentally and physically. With 3,700m climb, the current fastest time is 8 hours 23 minutes. Many would think this seems a long time for 80km but, those that have done would agree – this is no ordinary 80km. The 34km course follows the Hillary Trail from Piha to Muriwai and the 16km course follows the Hillary Trail from Bethells to Muriwai. The 16km course is also open to walkers.

Mount Difficulty Ascent
The premise is it’s a mountain trail ‘run’ of either half or full marathon distance. The reality is some sections of the ascent are between 40-50′. We also have a 200m section with a set rope in part of the decent, mostly to keep you on course but also as a safety requirement from a legal perspective. This is an adventure run, the ‘adventure’ part means you cannot run all of this course. The ups are really up! You’ll be hands on knees, puffing just to walk, at times you will be using your hands to help you scramble up some dirty, rocky slopes, maybe churning through snow.

The Berry Long Run
This is a great opportunity to run one of the few intermediate distance ultras in Australia, while also supporting a local charity that performs a crucial role in undoing the harm caused by the abuse and neglect of children. The Lerderderg Track, apart from being a really fun word to say aloud, is the Southernmost section of the Great Dividing Trail network. The course starts at Blackwood, quickly leaving town and getting into a brief taste of the sweet single-track along the gorge, before cutting through the forest along a mix of trails and dirt road down to Mt Blackwood, then on to the Blackwood Range Track, all the way to the trailhead at Swans Rd. The return route revisits the Blackwood Range Track to Mt Blackwood and continues to follow the magnificent Lerderderg Trail all the way back to Blackwood. You will pass through plenty of juicy forest, catch views of splendid vistas where gorge after gorge rolls away into the distance, negotiate awesome, highly runnable single track winding above the Lerderderg River on the way back into Blackwood – a lovely, historic mining town that’ll transport you back in time.
