Tour Overview
Held in September every year, this week is totally geared for the South Pacific holiday maker with a running addiction!    2017 marks the 40th Anniversary of this iconic event.

Rarotonga is a magnate attraction for the running enthusiast. Every year they host a full week of running events catering for the social, recreational and competitive runners.  And those who enjoy white sand beaches, quiet lagoons and tropical hilly terrain in this unique and scenically beautiful environment.

The main event is the 31km round island road race, run or walk. But if you're not up for that - there is a 10km run or walk option instead.  Then during the week, choose another event like the Local Fun Run, Hash House Harriers Birthday Run,  Round Rock Teams Relay or the totally mad 8.5km  Nutters Cross Island Run...which starts from the southern coast and heads over gnarly mountain ridges, across rugged valleys and riverbeds down to the Avatiu coastline.  5 separate Run Events over 7 days, join them all or just your favorites!.

Just a note to say a very big THANK YOU for your help in organising the trip for the Hamilton Marathon Clinic to Rarotonga last month. That was so much fun! And everyone really enjoyed their time away. Thanks for all your time and efforts. We are so pleased we found Wildside Travel in the beginning.
