Event Update #2, July 2020
Next Event: PLEASE LOCK IN Saturday 27th February, 2021.
Pre COVID-19 we had been re-evaluating the traditional date that we have used for 16 years: the first weekend of December. This is due to challenges with adverse weather in the last two iterations of the event. Whilst we fully understand that the event takes place in a changeable alpine environment, ultimately we are in the business of delivering sustainable, memorable event experiences for our ever-faithful Goats. There are more stable times for weather in the Tongariro National Park and alongside balancing the needs of event participants, staff, partners and the local community, weather has been our principal focus. In light of this, our preference was to move The Goat into the mid-to-late summer period for the future and we initially penciled in Saturday 20 February 2021.
We have now locked in Saturday 27 February 2021 as our next event date which will provide some other exciting opportunities surrounding the event. We hope to provide one further update which will be communicated to our Goat email database before we open entries in August or September (at the latest).
So thanks for your continued interest and support of our quintessential kiwi trail running adventure events – never tamed!
We’ll be in touch again soon.
Jason & Luke 👍
