A brand new global level mountain bike race is coming to the capital, showcasing Wellington’s world class trails
Capital Enduro, a brand new mountain bike enduro race, will showcase just how epic Wellington's trails are for mountain bike racing. Whether you're a mountain bike enthusiast, pro or novice biker, there's something to suit everyone at this global level race.
Capital Enduro takes place in February 2023, with a range of shuttle-assisted trails across Mākara Peak, Wrights Hill, and Karori Hill/Western Hills. There's $5500 in prize money and over $10,000 worth of spot prizes up for grabs.
The easy course, on Saturday, will cover 25-30 kilometres of grade 2-4 trails, designed to push the limits of novice and intermediate mountain bikers, while still being a great day out for experienced riders. Sunday is designed to challenge intermediate and advanced mountain bikers. The hard course, focusing on grade 4-5 trails, will cover 35-45km of physically and technically demanding trails.
For supporters and enthusiasts, soak up the atmosphere at the event hub at Karori Park. With live music, food trucks, sponsor tents, craft beer and the start/finish gantry, the hub is designed like a mini music festival.
