RACE DATES 14-15 March 2020
Set in the most stunning location, breathtaking Otago backcountry private trails, not normally open to the public. The Motatapu is New Zealand's most iconic off-road multi-sport event.
Featuring a mountain bike, off road marathon, xterra triathlon, ultra run and the Miners Trail 15km race and new 8.5km Sawpit Trail Run. There is something for everyone. However this event is a guaranteed sell out, so get online and book early.
The Queenstown Trails Trust is the Official Charity Motatapu. When you enter a percentage of your entry fee goes to the Queenstown Trails Trust. You also have the ability to further support the Queenstown Trails Trust by donating when prompted through the event online registration system.
Funds raised from the Motatapu goes directly back into trail network, enabling us to maintain and expand our trails into the future. We would like to thank the event organisers, Ironman and all of the competitors for their support of the trail network - race it, enjoy it, support it! THANK YOU!
