The opportunity to race across one of New Zealand’s most spectacular skylines. This is one of the highlights of the Red Bull Defiance event and now you have the opportunity to be a part of this event by racing the Skyline Traverse as a single stage.

This spectacular trail run offers a lengthy ascent followed by a technical traverse across the ridge line of Mt Alpha and Mt Roy. The route culminates with a run off Mt Roy and around the shore of Lake Wanaka back to Edgewater Resort.

Competitors will run through the breathtaking alpine landscape of Wanaka, taking them on a memorable journey around this amazing adventure playground.
