Visit Ruapehu

Ring Of Fire and Tussock Traverse

Whakapapa Village | 12 Mar 22

Come run or walk where the mountains meet the sky.

Saturday 12th March sees the return of New Zealand’s premier alpine ultra, the Ruapehu Ring of Fire 73km and 50km.

For the first time, Ring of Fire will combine the much loved Tussock Traverse event offerings of 6km, 12km, 21km, and 32km as part of a super day in the Tongariro National Park. 

The Chateau Tongariro Hotel has been secured exclusively as the official venue and designated finish line for all events.

The epic Ruapehu Ring of Fire solo 73km round the mountain and 50km event from Turoa Ski Area back to the Chateau will headline the weekend.
