The run itself takes you on either a 42km trail marathon, or a 60km Ultra marathon around the peaks that circle the outskirts of the CBD. These include Mt Kaukau, Makara Peak, Tawatawa Reserve, Mt Albert, and Mt Victoria.

Over the 60km route you will run through native New Zealand forest, farmlands, trails, beach, and even a golf course. You may see livestock, seals, and native birds among the other crazy runners out on the trails.
