Evolo Race Events brings New Zealand running races to a whole new level. You and 11 of your mates will run through New Zealand’s only non stop overnight running relay race. Starting in Papakura runner 1 will begin running, while the rest of the team rests in the support vehicle. Once runner 1 finishes their leg runner 2 takes over. Runners and vans will continue to leapfrog day and night until they reach the finish line on the beach at Mount Maunganui!
Think of it as a 300+ km party with 12 of your mates. Teams of 12 (referred to as the “Kiwi Dozen”) will rock out to great music, enjoy the wacky participant costumes, and make lifelong friends with teammates and fellow competitors. Teams will party along the beautiful back country of New Zealand’s North Island from Auckland to Tauranga.
Running three legs during a 30-hour relay race is actually much easier than you think. Each team member runs three legs, ranging between 5 and 14 kilometres each time. This relay race is physically demanding, but legs vary in difficulty, and runners can choose their legs. This unique relay format makes the K2M an accessible race for beginners yet challenging enough for the most competitive.
