Pre-Race Info

5 Unique events in beautiful Motatapu, Queenstown New Zealand.

It is completely up to you how much time and energy you devote towards preparing for the Motatapu but like most things, the more you prepare, the more you'll enjoy it! The things you'll need to think about before the race takes place are:

• Personal preparation (e.g. fitness & nutrition)
• Event Transport and Accommodation (often sells out)
• Mandatory Gear List & Compulsory Bike Check
• Weather Conditions (layers etc.)

Race Day Checklist

  • Mandatory Gear. All competitors must carry the mandatory gear at all times during race day

  • Transport timings & pick-up locations if booked

  • Weather appropriate clothing, plus sunscreen and cap

  • Race number attached to the front of your T-shirt if running and bike handle bars if riding.  

  • Enough food and drink to get you through the event.


Make your race morning transportation stress-free and book our easy shuttle service pre-event to the start line, and/or post event from the finish line. Transport needs to be booked and confirmed by 5pm, 12 March. Be sure to organise your transport early (as it sells out every year!), choosing your route carefully as last minute changes are usually difficult.

View the Event page for more information and to book your event specific service.
