The Mt Oxford Odyssey is Canterbury's must-do trail event. With a range of courses to suit competitors from elites to novices, and with the friendliest atmosphere, come and see for yourself what all the hype is about!
We are also home to New Zealand's toughest Mountain Marathon ! With 3500m of elevation gain over the 42km, there is no other marathon in the country with the same statistics.
The 50km Ultra offers competitors the most scenic 50km possible! With three lakeside sections - Lake Tekapo, Lake McGregor, and Lake Alexandrina - as well as having access to Balmoral Station and Sawdon Station, ascending Mt John, and running through towering trees in the Lake Tekapo Regional Park, this course is truly incredible. Perfect for your first ultra, or for those who want a new event to test themselves on, the 50km Ultra Marathon is a great choice!
The 33km Trail Run follows much of the same course as the 50km, meaning you get loads of scenery crammed in to the 33km distance. This course is a great step-up from the traditional Half Marathon distance, and with only one main ascent, it's not too hard on the legs!
Enter the 33km Trail Run and experience three lakeside trails, Mt John with the 360 degree views, and the Lake Tekapo Regional Park.
The 21km Half Marathon incorporates the best parts of Race Tekapo - amazing views, awesome trails, and all the fun!
The Half Marathon course is a figure of eight, and sees you passing the Race Village at the half-way point. This allows your supporters to cheer you on as you start, cross mid-way, and finish! Plus with amazing views the entire course, this Half Marathon is possibly the most scenic in the country!
The 12km Run or Walk event incorporates the focal point on the Lake Tekapo skyline - Mt John. This event sees you ascending Mt John through the trees, you traverse the summit of the mountain soaking up the incredible 360 degree views of the Mackenzie District, and then descend the mountain with awe-inspiring scenes of Lake Tekapo and the village.
Enter the 12km event and enjoy 12km of absolute jaw-dropping scenery!
