Tekapo10 XC MTB
2017 Tekapo10 is scheduled for Saturday 11th March
Grab a small group of your riding friends and put together a team for this event based on the successful XC Team Relay format.
Your team have 10 hours to complete as many laps of the 7km course as possible between 9am and 7pm.
The solo option is available for those wanting an ultimate challenge.
The Lake Tekapo Regional Park has a range of track type and surface with single track and 4WD tracks threaded together beneath the trees to give you a mix of riding that you will love. As a fundraising event we aim to keep things basic but fun and fair for all levels of XC racers. The high standard of racing in the inaugural event was great to see. We have added a couple of categories this year, Mixed Team and Veteran Team – as we grow this event we will continue to add more.
Each team will be given a transition area beneath the trees that the racers will ride their way through. Teams are encouraged to bring shelters, seating and warm-up bikes BUT no smoking or BBQs allowed (fire risk). There will be a fundraising BBQ set up in the gravel area that will sell a small range of delicious food items.
This event is a fundraiser for Mackenzie College Students' Outdoor Sports, Leadership and Teamwork.
