A new race base location is Raetihi's historic Waimarino showgrounds - with plenty of room for parking, spectators, picnics and food stalls to give a country-market feel to the day. New additions include off-road events for you to experience the amazing scenery and terrain of several large-scale hill country farms; and new Raetihi run events. E-bike categories have also been added. This is a special opportunity to immerse yourself in heartland New Zealand that you may otherwise never see.
Come and race the rural hills, experience the warm welcome and discover the adventures of Ruapehu - your Greater Outdoors!
