This is a popular track with options to one or both of these scenic locations.

Rocky Mountain is around 2-3 hours return (7km) and is more suited to the keen runner. Combine one or both of these runs with any of our other shorter duration runs. 

Pickup time from 7am, approximate time for tour is 3-4 hours (if doing both Diamond Lake & Rocky Mountain). Single supplement available - be sure to add in the single supplement fee during the booking process.

RunAways Wanaka’s guided running tours provide an alternative way of finding run locations in the Wanaka area without the hassle of finding transport, directions and track information yourself. While the mountains are our primary focus (there’s kinda a lot of mountains around Wanaka) we do have a few ‘flatter’ runs for those looking to take things a little easier. The guided runs are classed as runs however we do a lot of ‘power hiking’ on the majority of the ascents (as to not blow up and bonk!). We offer:

  • Pick-up and drop-off at your chosen local accommodation
  • Transport in a safe and comfortable 4wd vehicle
  • Commentary and local knowledge of the track and area
  • Support and encouragement during the run e.g. “You’re slower than soup with chopticks!” (just kidding)
  • Different guided runs of varying difficulty – something to suit all types of runners
  • An intimate small group environment – maximum of 6 people
  • An experienced and local guide
  • Chilled water/snacks/sunscreen/insect repellent provided
  • Discounts to a leading local outdoor retailer
  • Single supplement available
