Coppermine 2020

Saturday 28th March 2020

March 28th is the date to save, and NOW is the time to get your registration and training on the go.

The annual Coppermine Race is a Marathon XC MTB race that weaves through some of Nelson's best back country trails and traverses the spectacular Coppermine Mineral Belt and Dun Mountain.

The most exciting thing about this year's race is that the descent of the Coppermine Trail has just been completely re-furbished by Easy Trail Services.This means a much less intimidating descent for those feeling a little nervous, and a super fun and flowy descent for those looking to crush PBs!

The second most exciting this about this year's race is the MEGA PRIZE. Gravity Nelson, organizer of the Coppermine Race, has partnered with Helicopters Nelson to offer a guided Heli-drop to the Coppermine saddle for the winner and 3 friends! We have other great sponsors such as Solander, CamelBak, and many more that will be donating spot prizes, goodie bag supplies, and food and drink for racers and volunteers.

With many categories to chose from, including Ebikes and family teams, as well as an entertaining race village, there's something for everyone!
