The circuit consists of 114km of undulating, challenging but beautiful scenery with the race commencing and finishing in Taumarunui.

Competitors can enter as an individual or two person teams. Two person team transition is at Ohura, split times recorded.  Teams can be single sex or mixed.

On-line registrations will be available until midnight Friday before the event.
