The Raetihi Gutbuster

Waimarino Museum, Seddon St, Raetihi 4632. | 25 Mar 23

Come along and celebrate with us the 10th anniversary Raetihi Gutbuster event! Saturday 25th of March 2022

Events include 6km run, half marathon, ultra-marathon, 21k & 50k mountain bike rides and 27k & 55k road bike rides. Stunning scenery, challenging hill climbs, memorable hospitality hosted at the gateway to adventures and more... We're back for 2023!

A new race base location is Raetihi's historic Waimarino showgrounds - with plenty of room for parking, spectators, picnics, and food stalls to give a country-market feel to the day. New additions include off-road events for you to experience the amazing scenery and terrain of several large-scale hill country farms; and new Raetihi run events. E-bike categories have also been added. This is a special opportunity to immerse yourself in heartland New Zealand that you may otherwise never see.

We look forward to hosting you for the Raetihi Gutbuster 2023 - may it be a time of catching up with old friends and making new ones at our unique event.
