It’s kind of like marriage, a love hate relationship with something that sets a whole new tone of stepping up in your life.
Brutally honest but I feel pretty stoked about life as a goat finisher toda...y ����I’ll be back no longer a newby in 2018 See More

Loved every minute of this hard alpine run... The mamas mile of road at the end was cruel 😉
It was very well organised and the volunteers were awesome.
Thank you and I will be back.

Great Event, bloody hard, but fun. The organisation was like clockwork, the volunteers were amazing and the last bit of road up to the finish line was just cruel. Loved it. Thanks so much for the adventure.

The most 'technical' run in NZ by far, every step is a challenge and a delight, well organised and a great team looking after you all the way, congratulations on presenting what has to be the best race in NZ!

Just having completed my 7th Goat I must say these events are such a perfect blend of fun and gutsy challenge. At the start your are nervously excited, midway its exhilarating to be running on such a...n awesome landscape, and towards the end you are hurting so bad you wish you had never entered in the first place ... and then you cross that finish line and have the most ridiculous thought "hey lets do it again next year!"

The Goat - often cursed, never beaten!!! Not my best time, but then every time conditions are different.

Thank-you to the event directors for having the balls to let us "run" in such dreadful conditions. I am grateful we still got to tackle the mountain again and whilst very tough physically and mentally... we survived injury free! Had loads of fun. lots of mud slides, a wee swim (unintentional)and some dark times too... A huge thank-you to the volunteers who are the real heroes, it was always a lift to see a fluro figure appear out of the the mist, complete with big cheery smiles and sadly no vodka :)Was a little disappointed not to receive a medal at the end having almost been to hell and back but other than that had a great day with some very special friends who may never agree to do another event with me :) An awesome event like no other and I plan to be back next year...congratulations to all the first time goats who crossed the line, you should all feel very proud of what you achieved and to Brian the 81 year old you really are an inspiration!!

The Goat Kaimai & Tongariro are Kiwi treasures! The organisers are a fantastic bunch who keep it real & work hard to deliver an adventure run worth repeating, because this is real adventure! No cotton... wool, no aid stations just breath takingly beautiful NZ terrain that will test you & enthralled you.
This is not just a run - it's an experience.

Well said I would never ever ever do it again but time is dulling the pain but not the sense of achievement. Certainly the toughest mental challenge I've done. Would like to have been able to run it r...ather than just battling to stay upright in the mud... That mud just did my head in. Loved the waterfall!
Think gloves need to be on compulsory check list.
The winners times are astounding, the 81 year old competitor is inspirational and the volunteers/ Marshalls - thank you thank you thank you.
Maybe I'll give it another go??

Had total confidence in the organisers and marshals, definitely a run for taking responsibility for listening to advice and making the right decisions. Plus fellow competitors would have come to aid o...f anyone in danger. This run is talked of with awe for a reason. Huge respect for the marshals and support crew. See More

Magic Must Do event. Excellent organisation in a truly unique setting.
We are all privileged to be able to participate. The Goat gets into your blood !!---and---occasionally sets a little of it free!!

It was a joy to run around that part of the "round the mountain " track without the burden of a 20kg pack and heavy boots in typical ruapehu weather -so easy for the runners ,but my hero's for the day... were the marshals who selflessly gave up their time risking hypothermia to ensure the runners were ok A big thank you!

Wow, gruelling event.
Everyone has mentioned the guys at the finish, awesome.
But a big thanks to the on course marshals, encouraging, helpful and especially the guy on the waterfall handing out lollies.

What a Day ! an epic mountain adventure with weather to match.

The weather was crap and the track was a bog but fun was had by all
I think at a minimum this quick event video will bring back some great memories - it may just even choke a few people up as they remember that feeling of reaching Mama's Mile and seeing these guys! Billy and his team were nothing short of AMAZING (once Jason and I turned up with their Goat bells!)

Congrats Seven times Goat Champion Sjors Corporaal, son Kaya Corporaal & Oliver Thompson (Trident High School) 2nd men’s relay team in today’s Ring of Fire - Volcanic Ultra, 50km and Relay, Ruapehu, New Zealand.
