Legend awaits.

Each year for one day only the pristine trails of the Motatapu welcomes thousands of all-comers to experience one of New Zealand’s favourite off-road sporting events.

Set in the stunning Wanaka to Queenstown high country, you'll race through some of the most stunning high country terrain in New Zealand, with five different events to choose from depending on your appetite for scenery or suffering!

It’s a bucket-list off-road event for everyone from elite athletes to have-a-crack characters. A hugely enjoyable and social event, famous for its relaxed southern vibe.

Your chance - for one day only - to experience the legend that is the Motatapu.
