Hoka One One Tauhara Trail Run/Walk
Explore the north and east side of Mount Tauhara at your own pace as you cross privately owned farmland and wind your way through hidden forest trails that can only be experienced once a year as part of this special event.
What’s great about this event?
The Hoka One One Tauhara Trail Run gives you the opportunity to venture beyond the common trails and discover our true backyard. Participants start on an expansive open paddock with prime views of the imposing forest-clad Mt Tauhara across to the expanses of Lake Taupo and the Central Plateau mountains beyond. After a quick jostle for position you’re set off through a quarry and onto some twisty, turny and insanely fun-filled alpine roads and trails!
- Cruise through the sleepy forest trails
- Enjoy vast views over the Taupo Volcanic Zone
- Face exhilarating descents guaranteed to provide a rush
Following a steady climb through the Mt Tauhara trails runners and walkers are rewarded with a clear downhill stretch featuring views all the way back to the finish line (if they dare look up from the trail!). Upon completion, participants enjoy the usual Total Sport offering of a free beverage and organic sausage while soaking up the festive, post-event atmosphere with family & friends.
The Hoka One One Trail Run and Walk is great for any fitness level, so bring the whole family, and get amongst the fun! If you’re looking for a invigorating morning of activity, friends, music, friends, and inviting trails, the Hoka One One Tauhara Trail Run and Walk is the event for you!

What people say about Total Sport events
Our first Coastal Challenge and our group loved it! Such a great day out and something for the whole team!
What an awesome event – thank you so much for putting on such a totally mad event with such an incredibly supportive atmosphere. I cannot remember how many times someone offered me a hand over a rock – and so of course in turn I did the same for those behind me.
“What a happy event! The atmosphere was exciting and so welcoming.”
