New Races and Old Favourites being planned for next years event


The 10th Anniversary Event, the hills are the same, the Guts needed are the same, but as it's our birthday the event will be bigger. Tell your friends, encourage you work colleagues The Raetihi Gutbuster (April 14th 2020, Easter Sunday) BIGGER, because we want to celebrate the success of the last 9 years.

A big THANK YOU to Lucy and Mike for the last nine years and giving us a fantastic event to build on.

We will have the usual events, but are looking to add some new categories this year, along with a fun race for families and kids, a fancy dress race, and a team relay race.

Starting outside the Waimarino Museum in Raetihi, it's an out & back course with options to suit most.  The 18k has been completed by a 6 year old, even though it has a sharp 2k climb before the turnaround. The 50k is hotly contested by locals & out-of-towners, even though it's a 'fun ride'.

The road is sealed all the way.

The 25km 'downhill' option, is a fantastic race through some amazing country side and scenery.  This option allows you to ride down to Pipiriki and experience the road (there are still some big hills), with the luxury of getting a bus back.  This year we are looking to have this race timed; The bus(es) leave once the last rider has arrived, so take some money to buy an icecream while you wait.

For those who prefer feet to bikes, we have an 18km fun run. It follows the same course as the 18k bike ride and is a challenge to all runners - amateur or very serious.

Start / Finish area at the Museum has a market day atmosphere, entertainment, food stalls, A dunkin stool and other fun events
