The Possum - Night Run

Join The Possum on the shortest day and the darkest night. Run or walk 5km, 12km or 21km through steaming fields on single track. Then relax and soak in the hot pools

Yes The Possum welcomes both trail runners and walkers. It’s your race at your pace. Experience the Wairakei Resort – Craters Mountain Bike Park – Craters of the Moon Geothermal Walkway If you are looking for fun, adventure and personal challenge, plus a way to stay fit in the winter months then the Possum is for you.

Running or walking at night is just awesome and the trails they have lined up are super fun. The Craters of the Moon geothermal walkway is a real treat where you get to run or walk through a geothermal wonderland. There will be steam from the ground and probably steam from your body as you take on the ups and downs, gulleys, ridges and bridges.

Reflective course markings will light the path to follow and Marshals at key locations will keep you on course and provide lots of encouragement.

After the big night out soak in a geothermal hot pool to warm up and relax.
