TRAIL

Alpine Lodge Loop the Lake

Sat, 08/04/2017 Saturday 8th April 2017 SOLD OUT

The Event

The course is an anticlockwise circuit of Lake Rotoiti commencing from the Lake Rotoiti waterfront. Approximately 25km.

The Alpine Lodge Loop the Lake first began in 1996, and like the Abel Tasman Coastal Classic is conducted through a concession contract with the Department of Conservation, and is limited to 400* competitors to minimise impact on the trail.

Annualy the field usually sells out as the reputation of this track and its location, the Nelson Lakes National Park is somewhat renowned. The experience is alpine and bush trail with the possibility that participants will experience all alpine weather conditions during the event - yes, it has snowed before! Brrrrrr!

This one, is a fantastic introduction to trail running - many runners have had their first taste of off road running by completing this one.

For more information about the Nelson Lakes area, check out the Nelson Lakes web site www.destinationnelsonlakes.co.nz

and/or the DOC website

The course is an anticlockwise circuit of Lake Rotoiti commencing from the Lake Rotoiti lakefront. Approximately 25km.

Is the race suitable for first-time trail runners?
What about more experienced trail runners?
Are there water stations on the course?

Is the race suitable for first-time trail runners?

Yes it is. The track is undulating with intriguing variations in terrain that will keep you thinking for all 26kms. One thing we are not into is distance markers.  As it is a trail run, it means there is no white line to follow, and therefore you need to keep watch of track signs and markings to stay on the marked track.

What about more experienced trail runners?

Loop the Lake has plenty of opportunities for experienced trail runners to test their mettle or push for a personal best, better still a place on the race record table.

Are there water stations on the course?

There is no provision for a water station on the course, however at the head of the lake there is a free flowing stream, it is at your own risk and it is advisable to check with DOC as to the water quality closer to the event date. There will be water and fresh fruit at the finish.  We recommend you carry a water bottle / camelbak with you.
