Raglan Karioi Trail

The annual Raglan Karioi Trail event is soon approaching.  We hear from a few more past participants who thoroughly recommend the experience.

 2023 marks the 10th and I’m told, the last year for Francois Mazet’s epic trail run up and over and up and over the beauty that is Mt Karioi 

It’s impossible to explain what a special experience this event is – the trail is hard, it will push you to your limits, the rewards however are endless. Native bush, views to Taranaki (on a clear day) and the rugged west coastline that sits perfectly against the twisted jungle-like foliage. You’ll get a bit muddy, sweaty and sore. And after all of that, when you pop out the bush and onto the farm, you’ll hear the beat of the village, that’s when the smile will begin to grow, where stories are being shared, arrivals cheered and family and new friends celebrate the challenges of the adventure over beers and BBQ.

Something tells me this year those celebrations will take on a whole new level!

If you haven’t done it yet and want to, if you did it and haven’t been back for a bit, if you do it every year – don’t miss this one

Love the energy of this event, not to mention the terrain and the team! Best adventure out there, for all levels.

As a long time supporter and volunteer of this fun race I thought it was time to have a crack as see what all the talk is about. If it is half the fun that happens at the finish line it’ll be a great event. Really looking forward to it.
