Xterra Waihi

Enjoy a memorable pre-summer weekend away with family and friends to this year’s XTERRA Trail Challenge in the Karangahake Gorge near Waihi and experience an event that you won’t forget in a hurry!

What’s great about this event?

This event has something for everyone regardless of fitness level, age running/walking experience!

Five uniquely challenging distance options from the Trail Tigers event for the kiddies right through to the longest and most challenging quest – a 65km ultramarathon through the dense native bush of the Karangahake Gorge.

The XTERRA Waihi Trail Challenge has it all…

  • Numerous soothing stream crossings and cascading waterfalls
  • A variety of derelict tramways, tunnels and swing-bridges
  • Beautiful regenerating bush with mighty kauri trees and friendly local birdlife
  • Totally unique trails with stunning views 
  • This event doubles as the 21km New Zealand Trail Running Championships

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.”
