Celebrating 10 Years
With the creation of the Tauhara Trail Run/Walk and the Kinloch Off-road Half Marathon in 2009, the challenge to complete all three half marathons (including the Taupo Half Marathon) was born. Those who completed the 63.3 series - all three half marathons in three months - received plenty of respect and a finishers shirt to wear with pride. The concept proved very popular with many coming back year after year just to get their hands on another unique finishers shirt.
The 30.0 series (now 3 Tenners) was introduced when the Taupo and Kinloch events added a 10km option. And in 2015 (under the Run Taupo umbrella) both the Taupo and Kinloch marathons were added the list of series options, creating some very worthy challenges for those willing.
The now Hoka One One Run Taupo Series still remains a popular series of events with over 250 people signing up every year. And the finisher’s shirt is still up for grabs for all those willing to take on the challenge!
