Have you got what it takes?

On the 22 February 2025, those that revel in exploring their mental and physical limits will have an opportunity to do just that.

Traversing the stunning 85km Old Ghost Road and with more than 2,600 metres of ascent, the Old Ghost Ultra offers competitors the ultimate test in backcountry running.


The Old Ghost Ultra is a creation of the not-for-profit Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust (MLBT) - the community group that built The Old Ghost Road.  

The Old Ghost Ultra has been created for two principle purposes:

  1. To help introduce people to one of the most stunning and unheralded parts of New Zealand; and
  2. As a humble fundraiser towards our volunteer-led efforts to sustain The Old Ghost Road.
