DSC_0175DSC_0173

Ngongotaha King & Queen of the Mountain Race is held in conjunction with the Rotorua A & P Show.  Race from the Rotorua A & P Show Grounds to the top of Mount Ngongotaha and back. Then relax and enjoy all the fun at the Rotorua A & P Show.  Trophies and prizes.

PLEASE NOTE:   THIS WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY 29th JANUARY 2017

 

A real challenge up a real mountain on a very technical course – test your mountain climbing skills or just see how far you can get!

NEW Course! EPIC. Secret until the day
NEW Distances! For beginners AND hardcores!
NEW Management! Rotorua Trail Running Club in conjunction with the A&P Association

There will be a shorter Prince & Princess option for children, and Duke & Dutchess for beginners, which is also the cutoff time point for the full distance. So if you want to give the full King & Queen course a go, we will simply turn you around at the short-course marker if you don’t make that cutoff in time.

THIS IS THE KIND OF EVENT THAT MAKES YOU TOUGH.
There will be prickles. There will be cutty grass. You will be climbing on hands and knees. You will be sliding on your arse. Skin will be grazed. It will be hot. You will be wondering what the heck you got yourself into. You will but nod sympathetically as other competitiors heave past. And we will wait for you. With a nice cool drink at the finish!

PRICE: $10 cash-only at Race Registration Tent (PLUS your gate entry fee to the A&P showgrounds).
**Half of your Race fee is proudly being donated to Rotorua Cancer Society.

REGISTRATION: 12:30pm at the Rotorua Trail Running Club tent near the middle of the main showground area.

SAFETY:
Children under 10 years MUST be accompanied by a caregiver at all times (and pay the additional entry fee).
Organisers take all care and have a full Health & Safety plan in place, but only YOU are responsible for any injuries you sustain in this event.
The main Paradise Valley Rd remains OPEN to traffic, so please take care when you cross.
