Great Lake Relay


Don’t miss being part of this awesome run/walk relay around the stunning Lake Taupo with 3500 other competitors! Renown as being the best team building exercise of all time, the ultimate Team Relay has been described by participants as the most social and scenic event in New Zealand.

The Traffic Management NZ Great Lake Relay covers the 155km around Lake Taupo. Each team consists of 8 to 18 members, either running or walking the entire distance around Lake Taupo.

The Smiths Sports Shoes/Asics Length of the Lake Relay caters for teams of 4 to 8 who can run or walk to complete the eight legs, 67km from Pukawa on the southern end of the lake back to Taupo.

If you’re really up for a challenge, take on one of the ultra-marathon options. Run or walk the Moa 67km Length of the Lake or the 155km Great Lake Event!
