The Alpine Lodge Loop the Lake like the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic and Captain Cook’s Landing events is conducted through a concession contract with the Department of Conservation, and is limited to 400* competitors to minimise impact on the trail. Annually the field usually sells out as the reputation of this track and its location, the Nelson Lakes National Park is somewhat renowned. The experience is alpine and bush trail with the possibility that participants will experience all alpine weather conditions during the event – yes, it has snowed before! Brrrrrr!

This one, is a fantastic introduction to trail running – many runners have had their first taste of off road running by completing this one. The course is an anticlockwise circuit of Lake Rotoiti commencing from the Lake Rotoiti lakefront. Distance is approximately 24km.
