Welcome to the 'Resilience Ultra' which is proudly powered by  New Zealand Red Cross. Brought to life as a fundraiser for the largest humanitarian network in the world and in recognition of the bountiful landscapes of the West Coast, this endurance run is not for the faint hearted! Do you have the mental and physical resilience to complete this gruelling ultramarathon?


Starting and finishing in the historic town of Reefton, Resilience will take you on a journey into the past by venturing through the native beech forests and historic goldfields of Victoria Forest Park. Many of the tracks have been formed by linking mining roads, tracks and tramways that are as historic as the relics found along them. These iconic trails reveal many tales and give you a glimpse of what life was once like in “Quartzopolis”.
