The Tour de Wakatipu was born out of the idea of having a fun challenging mountain bike event set in the Wakatipu Basin that links two rivers and two lakes, and using some of the new tracks developed by the Wakatipu Trails Trust. On offer is a 36ks fun ride for the recreational rider or a 45ks race for the elite and sport racers. And we have also introduced a new 12.5kms run option. Starting from Millbrook resort, and ending in the idillic Chard Farm location, riders enjoy a scenic tour of the basin using 4*4 and gravel roads, as well as single tracks with only a kilometre or so of tarmac during the journey. Runners start on the right bank of the Kawarau to run through Cone Peak station and finish also in Chard Farm. Entry Fee: $75 adult, $45 junior, $200 Family pass.
