The Possum | Night Run 2020

The Possum | Night Run 2020

Join us for a 5km, 12km or 21km run or walk through steaming fields on a single track, and finishing off with a relaxing soak in the hottest geothermal pools.

The Possum welcomes both trail runners and walkers. It’s your race at your pace.
Experience the Wairakei Resort Taupo, Craters Mountain Bike Park and Craters of the Moon Geothermal Walkway. If you are into fun, adventure or have a personal challenge to remain fit in the winter months then The Possum is for you.

Night running or walking is simply awesome and the trails we have designed are super fun. Reflective course markings will line the paths and marshals at strategic locations help to keep you on course and provide lots of encouragement.

After the big night out, delight in some dinner from the menu by the Wairakei Resort Taupo, soak in a geothermal hot pool to relax or simply retreat to your room for the night.

The Possum Night Run will be held on Saturday, 20th June 2020 with the start and finish line at Wairakei Resort Taupo.

Reserve your accommodation at the resort at specially curated rates to enjoy staying right where the action is.
