New Zealand's premier tourist city provides a spectacular backdrop for one of the most iconic and varied running events in the country. Major city boulevards, fabulous forest trails and historic buildings all play their part. Where else in the world can you run right through the middle of an active geothermal part or right over the top of a crystal-clear petrified forest? Welcome to the stunning Rotorua Running Festival. Come take on the Ultra Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km, 5km fun run/walk or the kid's dash. There is something for the whole family so why not make a weekend of it?
