Mt Difficulty Ascent
Extreme mountain marathon or half marathon.
Based on Mt. Difficulty, Cromwell, New Zealand.
The premise is it’s a mountain trail ‘run’ of either half or full marathon distance. The reality is some sections of the ascent are between 40-50′. We also have a 200m section with a set rope in part of the decent, mostly to keep you on course but also as a safety requirement from a legal perspective.
If that’s making you uncomfortable already, good, this event is not for everyone – we have a much more benign Marathon or Half Marathon event The Rustic Run/Walk (on the same day, same start/finish) or come back in summer for the BIG EASY.
