NZ MTB Rally

Saturday 9th-Saturday 16th March 2024

A week-long all-inclusive enduro-format race, traversing NZ’s undiscovered top-of-the-south region. Comprising world-class trails in a pristine backcountry environment, sandwiched between three national parks. From 3 basecamp locations, 120 competitors will complete a circular itinerary out of Nelson, taking in both historic tracks and IMBA gold-level mountain bike trails.

This amateur race is a refreshing take on the familiar ‘trans-enduro’ format, but with properly rad logistics: if there’s a road, we’ll shuttle it. When that road gets rough, we’ll take the 4x4. Where there’s no road at all, we’ll jump in the heli. And when there’s nothing but water…we’ll take the sea shuttle.
