The Double Rainbow Trail Run/Walk

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 11 Jun ’16, 8:00am


Lake Okaro, Okaro Road, Rotorua


All Ages

This event is a 46km, 25km or 17km trail run based around Rainbow Mountain, Rotorua. From the top of Rainbow Mountain you might see the Double Rainbow or the view of Tarawera, Rotorua District and to the South West the Central North Island volcanoes! A great variety of tracks from the beautiful DOC tracks going up and down Rainbow Mountain which go through geo-thermal activity, to private farmland tracks and forest roads.

The course starts on a private farm, before crossing underneath SH38 and joining the new cycle track around the base of Rainbow Mountain. This joins the existing track to the summit which offers amazing views (double rainbow like views!) including the central North Island volcanoes. Then it's down a mountain bike downhill trail and around the base to the track up to the summit again. The 46km will climb four times, the 25km two times and the 16km once! You return from the mountain under the highway again and back through the farmland to finish at Lake Okaro.

As usual, as part of your entry fee we provide a light meal after the race.

"Whoa, that’s a full rainbow, all the way. Double rainbow, oh my god! It’s a double rainbow all the way." A brand shiny new event and website! "Oh my god! Oh Ohhhh God! Its so bright! It’s so bright and vivid." quotes from the original Double Rainbow man Paul Vasquez.
