Central Plateau

Proudly tagged as “one of New Zealand’s must-do quintessential Kiwi event experiences”, the award-winning T42 Central Plateau mountain bike and run/walk event takes you into the crisp alpine air and pristine environs of the Tongariro National Park – and onto the event’s namesake trail, the iconic “42 Traverse”.

Originally a logging road through State Forest 42, the “42nd Traverse” has become New Zealand’s most popular MTB ride. This event offers experienced riders the opportunity to battle for line honours on the 42nd Traverse, and gives less-experienced riders the chance to enjoy the fun forest trails and streams of the 42nd Traverse with full support and a team dedicated to trail management and safety.

Total Sport’s T42 Central Plateau event delivers an outstanding weekend away for you and your mates – or the whole family – with event options galore. From the iconic 48km MTB or 42.2km offroad marathon across the 42 Traverse; a rugged 24km offroad run/walk adventure, and two run/walk courses (11km and 6.5km) located around the enchanting native bush trails of Owhango village.

The T42 event HQ and legendary after-party are both conveniently located at The Park Hotel in National Park Village. The Park Hotel accommodation sells out quickly so don’t delay!

Gather your best weekend-away buddies and head to the stunning Central Plateau for the T42 mountain bike and run/walk this May!
