Meridian Hydro Half Marathon

Mitre 10 Te Anau 10km

This event is proudly organized by the Fiordland Trails Trust with main sponsorship from Meridian and Mitre 10 Te Anau

Fiordland known for its wilderness and breathtaking scenery is the stunning and spectacular backdrop for the Meridian Hydro Half Marathon and 10km run.

Running under the snow capped mountains, through sections of beech forests and along the crystal clear Waiau River to finish up at the Lakefront town of Te Anau is a firm favourite and regular fixture in the running calendar.

Funds raised from the event will go towards maintaining the Lake2lake trail and potentially growing this event in the future.
