Welcome to the Rotorua Trail Running Club (RTRC) website.  Blogger may be our home just temporarily but we thought it was time to have a website so we can let you know about the great things going on at our club, and not just via Facebook.  We may be moving to a new website home sometime in 2015 but keep an eye on this page for now.
Our club aims to be a friendly group of people who enjoy running (and walking) the trails around the Bay of Plenty region.  We have a lot of awesome trails around our city – the Redwoods/Whakarewarewa, Tarawera Trail, Mt Ngongotaha, Rainbow Mountain, Western and Eastern Okataina Walkways and that’s just a few around the Rotorua region!
We are new but have already got some great things happening like the weekly Wednesday Night Run and now Hard Hill Tuesdays.  Weekend runs are being planned by our members on a regular basis.  All of our runs are published each week in our members newsletter or shared on Facebook.
We are still a very new club so we are super keen for you to come along and become a member – please click on this link to our membership form and come and join us!
