Wellington is the home of New Zealand’s wild weather, hills, and coastlines. The XTERRA Trail Runs will leave you with memories of breathtaking views, jagged coastlines, lush native forest, and some of the best after match stories you will ever hear.

We hold a five-event season from the end of March to mid-June. We rotate through venues to keep things interesting and guarantee you the best running experience in the Wellington region.

Courses are located on:

  • The Meridian Wind Farm
  • Mākara Peak
  • Owhiro Bay
  • The Orongorongo's
  • Belmont Regional Park
