NZ Trail Running Champs

The New Zealand Trail Running Champs has no fixed location as such. It is one of only three championships to not have a standalone event of its one, the other being the Half Marathon and Marathon Champs. Athletics NZ always host it as a sub-event within an existing event.

While the ANZ competition have provided for a National Trail Running Championships for many events, the National Championship did not come into being until 2018. Christchurch's Crater Rim Ultra were the inaugural hosts.

The next event will be held on 13 October 2019.
