The North Range Trio offers three off-road running/walking events that cater to everyone's needs. It is set among the picturesque wind farms in the northern Tararuas. With stunning views over Wairarapa and the Manawatu, you are sure to be in for a treat.

The popular Tilt Renewables North Range Traverse and Salming Hall Block Humdinger return with minor changes, providing distance options of 25km and 12.5km respectively, and this year there is also the exciting addition of the Manawatu's first and only off-road ultra marathon, the brand new Love My Sport Catchment Ultra 50km. The Catchment Ultra can be run as a solo event or as a two-person team relay.

The event HQ is at Ferry Reserve, Ballance. The Salming Hall Block Humdinger 12.5km is a challenging out-and-back course heading from the Ferry Reserve up Hall Block Road and down again. The Tilt Renewables North Range Traverse 25km starts on the Pahiatua track and runs along North Range Road to Ferry Reserve.

The Love My Sport Catchment Ultra 50km starts at Nae Nae Road on the Wairarapa side of the Tararuas and include a grunty climb up to South Range Road, which it follows until you reach the start of the Tilt Renewables North Range Traverse route which doubles as the second half of the ultra. The Tilt Renewables North Range Traverse start is also the change-over point for the Love My Sport Catchment Ultra relay option.
