The Old Ghost Road Ultra
The Old Ghost Ultra Marathon is run entirely on The Old Ghost Rd, soon to be New Zealand's newest and longest continuous single-track, located near Westport on the West Coast of the South Island. Touted as an ultra-marathon to 'test the best', competitors will face more than 2600 metres of cumulative elevation gain and will have 17 hours to complete the course, with the fastest expected to finish in as little as 8 to 9 hours. Entries will be limited to 150 competitors for the maiden event. The Old Ghost Ultra is a collaboration between Top of the South Events Ltd (ToSE) and the Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust.
