2014 Vibram Tarawera Ultramarathon Live Coverage

Tarawera Ultramarathon logoThis weekend, we’ll be covering the 2014 Vibram Tarawera Ultramarathon from Rotorua on New Zealand’s North Island. Our coverage begins on Saturday, March 15 at 6:30 a.m. New Zealand Daylight Time (which translates to Friday, March 14 at 11:30 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time).

We’ll be livecasting the event on iRunFar’s Twitter feed. We’ll also be combining our Twitter feed with other possible news sources in the CoverItLive window below.

Update: Due to the remnants of tropical cyclone Lusi, the featured 100k event has been shortened to 69k. The course consists of an approximately 12-kilometer loop around the redwoods which returns to the start before following the course out to the Okatina Lodge Aid Station. The course then makes a short out-and-back from the lodge totaling 4k worth of trail before heading backward on the course to Lake Okareka, this year’s finish line.

Here are a couple resources to help you follow the race:
