There are 3 completely new courses to choose, ranging from 13 to 35 km, to suit all riders. We have had more trails built over the past year and the courses have been completely revamped to ensure we incorporate the best of all the trails in the park. The start and finish of each course will be at the bottom of Arapuke Forest Park at the end of Kahuterawa Road, but from there all bets are off, other than there will still be 3 great courses.
2021 13 km Course (Yellow)
13 km course includes some of our best grade 3 trails including Pupu Rahi and Jack and The Beanstalk to get you to the top of the park, followed by our favourite Grade 2 and 3 trails About Time and Icebreaker and finally the exhilarating dash down Twister to take you all the way back to the finish.
2021 Kia 26 km Course (Blue)
The Kia 26 km course takes in an all new course.
2021 Brent Boddy Prestige 35 km Course (Red)
The Brent Boddy Prestige 35 km course is also an all new course for 2021 incorporating all of the Grade 2, 3 and 4 trails in the park.
Don't be misled by the distance, the use of over 80% single track and plenty of climbing ensures that the Brent Boddy Prestige 35 km course will challenge even the fittest riders.
The course includes all of our best climbs and downhill trails, including our most recent grade 4 climbing trail The Bends, from the bottom of Chewbacca up to the Checkpoint Charlie Hub. While there are some uphill road sections the course is over 80% single track. Some grade 4 trails are included in the course, but those not so keen to take on the epic Grade 4 Chewbacca can descend the slower Karearea.
