The course follows a spectacular loop from Arrowtown, ascending the historic Tobin’s Track up onto the Crown Terrace before entering the magnificent Glencoe Station. You’ll pass historic ruins of a miner’s cottage as you climb to the highest point at 906m. The course then descends down towards the valley where you soon join up with the New Chum Track. Racers will climb up to a ridge overlooking Arrowtown and follow the trail down into New Chum Gully. The next kilometre will see athletes through a challenging and breath-taking section up and out of the gully and down onto Macetown Road to join the rest of the Motatapu athletes for the final river crossings into the finish.

This is a mountain-style course with varied terrain underfoot including farm track, backcountry single track and with short sections of steep accent/decent. Not to mention the river crossings that greet you in your final KM! This will be a spectacular race that you won’t soon forget.

Get off-road and into the hills – you have a challenge ahead of you!
