Description: The Ultra Easy 100k, the BIG EASY Mountain Marathon and the 14k river trail run. All based out of the Albert Town Tavern, Wanaka New Zealand. The Ultra Easy is a 100km loop, starting at Albert Town Tavern, running over Mt Iron, Roys Peak, Mt Alpha, Little Criffel and joining the marathon course to go over Mt Pisa – about 4700m (15400f) of climbing and descending. – 3am start. 20hr cut off. Not to be taken lightly! The Big Easy Marathon is 42.2km starting at the Snow Farm 1500m above the Cardrona Valley. 11am start – nice and relaxed. You run a gentle 9km of ‘up’ to the top of Mt Pisa then 21km of ‘down’ to Luggate before 12km of ‘flattish’ back to Albert Town Tavern.
