Are you on the fence about joining us on 6th March? 

Well here are some reasons why you can still come and enjoy our famous Southern hospitality. And remember entries close on the 26 February so you have 3 weeks to press that button and commit to an epic day out!

The Macpac Motatapu is your one and only chance to ride or walk through these four spectacular private stations once a year. Plus, you get to share this incredible experience with a group of amazing like-minded people, all loving it and laughing throughout the day. The camaraderie and shared experience of being in the backcountry is memorable and it’s what brings people back every year. 

Need a fitness goal? The 15km Miners Trail could be for you. You can walk this “race” or run if you are keen, while still taking part in the action and fun that is the Macpac Motatapu. Stunning views and being among hundreds of like-minded people getting after it will give you the motivation to keep you going. We promise, it’ll be a lifetime memory that will have you coming back for more.

Want to race but don't know where to start? Why not embark on that journey with us at the Macpac Motatapu? It’s a safe and secure race to start your foray into the racing world. We have all experienced those butterflies on the start line and we know how hard it is to take that leap. But the Macpac Motatapu team and fellow competitors are there to figuratively hold your hand and show you how amazing racing can be.
Did you know you can do the Motatapu on your ebike? The rise of the MTB ebike has been astronomical this past year and it has allowed more people to venture onto our New Zealand trails. This year, it can allow you to ride the Macpac Motatapu. Bring your ebike, bring a friend and make your way through the valleys at your own pace (although not too slow to miss the cut-off times!). And if you’re a regular out at Bike Glendhu, we are sure you have the skills for the valley. 
Want to make your 2021 Macpac Motatapu weekend even more epic?
