Unrivalled run, walk, and MTB courses through a back-country station.
500 spots. All-inclusive. An experience like no other. September 28 2019
Nestled in the secluded Taharua Valley in New Zealand’s North Island – just a 40 minute drive from Taupo – Poronui is an authentic back-country station set in the foothills of the beautiful Kaimanawa Mountain Ranges.
The Poronui Passage is a new concept in trail events: the “lux” trail event. Sort of like treating yourself to a day at the spa – except it's a challenging and insanely scenic MTB, walk or run wrapped up in all the special treatment you could wish for.
Think cosy blankets and fires, gourmet post-event fare, beautiful high-quality event apparel, all the barista coffee you can drink, epic medals, free event photos, a stunning and inaccessible location, craft beers and wine at the finish line, and heaps more. It’s going to be quite a day. See what’s included here.
