1 Day 100km Marathon Mountain Bike Race
The 100km course is the ultimate challenge in mountain biking in New Zealand. No other race of this distance offers the amount of single track we do. And that is the kicker – even though it will hurt you will love it. The 100km course encompasses the best riding in Whakarewarewa Forest. Enough said really.
The teams event for the 100km course has two legs split into 60km for Leg 1 and 40km for Leg 2 with the changeover being at the end of Old Chevy. Leg 1 is the longest but Leg 2 does contain a lot more climbing. It is a great opportunity for you to experience the 100km course over a couple of years before you step up to the solo event.
The 50km course takes in some great trails and to finish this is an achievement in itself. The 25km course is designed for recreational riders who just want to get out and about and explore more trails.

Race HQ will be at the Waipa mountain bike carpark off Waipa State Mill Road. To get here go south out of Rotorua along State Highway 5 - it is an easy riding distance from town is you want a pre-race warm up. Riding back after the race might be a problem though.
