RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon

In 2019, the ELEVENTH edition of the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon will take place on the South Island of New Zealand. The host town will be Queenstown, famous for its adventure sports. The South Island is renowned for its mountains, lakes and glaciers. In the southwest is Fiordland National Park with steep-sided Milford Sound. In the north is Abel Tasman National Park. There are few places in the world where, within the space of one day, you can experience mountain vistas, ancient forests, volcanic landscape and stunning coastline - all while spotting wildlife not found anywhere on earth.
