Pulse Energy Oparara Wilderness Trail Run

April 18, 2020
Westport and Karamea

The 2020 Pulse Energy Oparara Wilderness Trail Run will be held on Saturday 27 April in Kaurangi National Park, Karamea.

The Oparara Wilderness Trail Run will take you through the ancient, untouched rain forest of the Oparara Valley in Kahurangi National Park at the top of the South Island’s West Coast.

Vicki Woolley, editor of KiwiTrailRunner magazine describes this unique place simply as “Trail Heaven”.

This race will take your breath away in more ways than one and is an absolute “must do” in this secret part of New Zealand. Stay in Karamea and enjoy the wonderful laid back lifestyle, the beaches, walks and rivers.

The 36km and 20km events take competitors through the pristine untouched rain forests of the Oparara and Fenian Valleys and across farmland to the finish line at the Karamea Domain.

At the finish line there will be a festival atmosphere of live music, food and beverage stalls and entertainment for the children.

Entries open on Monday 30 September 2019.
