Whangamata Adventure Race

Saturday 11th August 2018 - Whangamata Ridges MTB Park


The MTB course will utilise the awesome tracks of the Whangamata Ridges MTB park. As a general rule you will ride up forestry roads and ride down single track. There will be a variety of tracks for all ability levels. You will receive a MTB Park map as well as the navigation map. Good planning will be essential for the MTB stage as most of the tracks are 1-way. The Foot course will be a great aventure. It will utilise the surrounding forestry, native bush and farmland (and a little bit of swampland for the super keen). It also includes visiting the summit of a unique Whangamata mountain which most people have never been to!
