Results updated continually as folk finish – click tab above.

All based out of the Albert Town Tavern, Wanaka New Zealand.

The Ultra Easy 100k Sky Run 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 of climbing and descending. –  3am start. 20hr cut off. Not to be taken lightly! More…

The Ultra Easy Relay Category is on again!! 5 legs –  15.1km with 388m vert, 23km with 1700m vert, 21.4km with 1500m vert , 29km with 753 vert (and 1800m decent!), 13.4km with 150m vert. Strava maps for each leg here.

The Big Easy Mountain 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. More…

The 13 k river run is the last part of the course – 12pm start at Lake McKay Station woolshed (Luggate) and follows farm tracks under the main road to join up with the Clutha River trail – a beautiful 13ks – and you have all the time in the world! Then lounge on the grass (or in the beer garden) and support the longer distances as they come in! More…

  1. Hi there. Was thinking of doing the 13km run. Just wondering if you get anything for finishing? Like a certificate or something 🙂


    • You get to keep your race number! (Kinda like a certificate) and a cold can of something refreshing at the end… quite a lot of spot prizes too… trophies for place geters…


  2. Hi, I would like to run the Ultra Easy 100km Sky Run next January but I would like to know if it is a qualifying race for the UTMB (Ultra Trail Mont Blanc in France) in 2018 ? Could you confirm me if I will get 5 ITRA points ?
    Thank you for your answer.
