For those of you deciding to take on this ‘Big Boy' you will be in for everything the Waikato River Trails has to offer! Starting at the majestic Little Waipa Domain, nestled on the banks of Lake Karapiro this 83km Mountain Bike sure does have a lot to offer! For those of you up for the challenge, this ride is amazing, but it is a long, tough day out there!

For the first 10km of your adventure you will be on some great single track which makes for some of the best riding of the whole day. As you gradually climb up to and past Arapuni Township you will be treated to some scenic views of both Lake Karapiro and Arapuni before popping out on Lake Arapuni Road.

The next 15km of your ride is a long gradual climb from 120 meters above sea level to 350 meters. The good news is that this 15km section is also all on quiet, but sealed (aka nice and fast) country roads. Essentially the only road section of any significance in your ride today, you will knock this 15km/230 meter with relative ease while you take in the traditionally rural Waikato country side.

After all the climbing there's got to be some to show for it right?...RIGHT. At the end of Waotu South Road you head back into the trails and straight into a long, and in parts steep, downhill. The first section of this downhill will test both the nerves and the brakes with a number of tight switch-backs, before opening up with some fast sweeping corners as you get back down next to the river.

As you make your way along the newly created gravel track you will be treated to some beautiful native bush while travelling next to the southern end of Lake Arapuni. This section also boasts the biggest swing bridge of the trail, its impressive! You also take in a short section of the forestry roads as the foliage turns to the pine variety for the last few kilometers before the Waipapa Dam.

Once across the Waipapa Dam (half way point!) you are now heading down the Western side of the mighty Waikato River. The track surface now changes to hard packed clay, the forestbecomes more closed in, and the hills start to bite harder. In the 8km following the Dam you undulate your way through old pine forests, then head up a tough climb and away from the river. From here the going gets slightly easier before you pop out at the Maraetia Power Station. Your legs will love the next couple of km as you scream down the sealed road and into the historic river side town of Mangakino.

The next 12km from Mangakino to Whakamaru Dam is a highlight of the day. You will enjoy the rolling gravel track as you hammer it through pockets of bush with farm land and friendly cows to your right and constant views of Lake Maraetai to your left -stunning! Crossing your last dam of the day, Whakamaru Dam, you will be straight back into quality trail! Now following Lake Whakamaru you cling to the bank, as the track winds its way east through a beautiful strip of native bush wedged between Ongaroto Road and the lake. The bush opens and you cruise through some spectacular lake side reserves for the last couple of km's before you finish at the truly magic Whakamaru Christian Camp, situated on its own Island surrounded by the clear waters of Lake Whakamaru.

Aid stations:22km, 38km, 50km, 57.5km, 70km, 76km.(all aid stations willstockat leastGu Brewand water. And the aid station at 57.5km will have food)

Course cut-off time: 9hours

Highly Recommended Gear:

  • Beanie - polypropylene or wool
  • Spare long-sleeve thermal top
  • Jacket - seam sealed
  • Basic first aid kit (including; 2m x 50mm strapping tape, 1x 50mm crepe bandage, 4x gauze pads, 6x painkillers, 15cm self-adhesive bandage strip)

Starting on Waotu South Road, up will be directed south on the road for a couple of km to sort yourselves out before heading into the trails and straight into a long, and in parts steep, downhill.

  • LEG 3 - Waipapa Dam to Mangakino. - 21km's. Grade: mod-hard

Timing transponders will serve as your team ‘baton', these will be changed over at each transition point as you relay your way through the course; transition points will be at aid station's. Each member in the team will have a race number (the same one obviously). Check out the 83km mountain bike course description above, for more detail about each leg.


Trail Run Teams

Wish you could tackle the 60km Ultra on your own... but can't!? This might be the perfect option for you. Grab 1, 2 or 3 of your mates/family members/colleagues and relay your way through the awesome 60km run course together (check above for more detailed course description).

Event Registration

Event registration will be held on Friday the 8th of November at the super impressive South Waikato Sport and Events Centre. Registration will be open from 4pm to 9pm and is compulsory for all participants to collect their race number, timing transponder and goodie bag. There will also be a number of the events sponsors set-up at this registration offering ‘event specials'. The Sport and Event's Centre is located in Tokoroa on the corner of Mossop Road and SH1.

If you have booked a bus to the start line for you and your bike, you must register on the Friday and drop off your bike.

If you are unable to make it for Friday registration, there will also be registration's set up at each of the start lines from an hour and a half before your race start time. However we do ask anyone that can make it to the Friday registration to do so, this way you have nothing to do on event morning other than get yourself ready and psyched-up for your big race!



Event Transport

For all of you that require transport for yourselves from the finish line at Whakamaru Christian Camp to your start line there is a bus option available. This is optional and is designed for people that don't have ‘support crews' with them to drop them at their start point in the morning. There is an additional cost that comes with booking the transport option, and this can be booked when entering your chosen event option, alternatively the bus can be booked at a later date if you are un-sure at this stage whether or not you will require it.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are doing one of the mountain biking events and are booking the optional event transport to your start line you will have to attend the Friday registration. You will drop off your bike on the Friday when you register, andthen on Saturday morning you will park your car at the finish area, get on a bus (with your gear, helmet, shoes... etc...)and be taken to your start line, your bike will be waiting for you there.

Bus Times: (leaving from the finish area - Whakamaru Christian Camp. Please park your car in the adjoining reserve area, as directed by parking marshals)

  • 60km Bus - 0630

'When the total sport crew stay's in the South Waikato/Taupo area we stay at The Dam Lodge, Out in the Styx, or Hilton Lake Taupo.

Download a list of great local accommodation (32kb PDF) providers across the South Waikato area.

The lovely people at SWDCSports and Events Centre have also offered a large grassed area and parking area for anyone that wants to pitch their tent or park their campervan up for Friday and/or Saturday nights (and be close to the auction for Friday night registration and/or Saturday night prize giving and dinner). There will be access to toilets and showers, but no cooking/kitchen etc. facilities available.
