A Taste of RotoVegas

Run by Mike Tennent

NEARBY TOWN/CITY: Rotorua

DISTANCE FROM CBD: 5kms

EXACT LOCATION: Start from the Waipa Mill Carpark – head out of Rotorua towards Taupo, as you get through the small gorge you will see the road to Tokoroa on your right, go past that and take the next left which is pretty clearly signposted to the Mill. 200 metres along this road you will see a carpark on your left.

TOTAL ROUTE DISTANCE: 13kms

TIME TO RUN: 1 hour (Elite) to 2 hours (Novice)

TYPE OF TRAIL RUN: Loop

DIFFICULTY: Moderate with an optional tough climb.

DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS: Mix of single track and forestry road with a couple of views thrown in. A little bit of the best of running Rotorua trails.

START GPS: Lat; 38°10’28.24″S Long; 176°15’7.51″E

FINISH GPS: Same

RUN IT: Mike was kind enough to write a set of detailed instructions including photos to help with navigation. This is best viewed in PDF format – A Taste of RotoVegas

POST RUN GOODNESS: Rotorua is jam-packed with fantastic Cafés and Restaurants. If it’s the weekend or the holidays you won’t have to leave the carpark to get a great coffee as the caravan serving there is tops. In Town try Zippy’s next to the Post Office or Fat Dog in Arawa Street and if you are looking for somewhere to stay with a great restaurant then you can’t go past the Regent of Rotorua.
