Taranaki Trails

Taranaki – A trail running paradise

Posted on 4 October 2022

In Taranaki, we love trail running and there’s something for every type of runner.

Below are some recommendations from locals – from an easy 3km around a beautiful reserve close to the city, to 20km plus gnarly challenges.

There’s also a range of running events, including the Off-road Half Marathon in January, the Oxfam Trailwalker in March and the Around the Mountain relay in November. See our Events page for more information.

Some suggestions of great trail runs, all available on the Find my Adventure site:
