The Goat Adventure Run

The Goat.jpg (1)

Welcome to The Original Tongariro Goat website. This is an exhilarating adventure run from Whakapapa to Turoa Ski Fields on the Round the Mountain track, traversing the western slopes of Mount Ruapehu.

The 20 kilometre (approx.) course has over 1,000 metres of vertical ascent and covers a whole bunch of amazing terrain. Participants will experience stunning scenery ranging from ancient lava flows and scoria fields, mountain beech forest, tussock grasslands and alpine herbfields to cascading waterfalls, an alpine lake, boulder strewn rivers and amazing panoramic views, all set in a Dual World Heritage Area; the Tongariro National Park.

Entries to the Goat have sold out, however you can still enter The Big Kid which is a challenging 18km alpine adventure run starting at Horopito up the Mangaturuturu track and Cascades waterfall to finish at Turoa.
