The best possible Possum event experience is comprised of entering the race and staying at the historic Wairakei Resort Taupo which is the heart of the event and start/finish line for all distances. Make a weekend of it with your family and friends and enjoy all that the Wairakei Resort has to offer including geothermal pools, tennis, a stroll in the grounds or golf. With the Taupo town just 5 minutes up the road, you might like to check out the boutique shopping, hole in one or any of the other wide range of activities.

Once you have run or walked your Possum event, you can just wander back to your room to stay the night – hassle and driving free.
