NEW ZEALAND'S PREMIER
HILL CYCLING EVENT


Hi everyone,
70 days to go until Le Race-  Entries are tracking really well, we are 38% ahead of this time last year! Women's entries are also up 15% compared to (this time) last year. 

Entries for Le Race 2017 are open so CLICK HERE to enter now and don't forget to mark it on your calendar - we look forward to seeing you on the start line!

In 2016 we introduced Le Race Petite and it's back again! But this year bigger and better! This is the perfect event for those not quite ready for the full 100km traditional Le Race course. Starting at 8:05am in Cathedral Square, the course follows the same route as the full length Le Race, but ends at Little River. This event has all the same features as Le Race, including timing, spot prizes and entertainment. The Wairewa Pa Road finish line allows those who want to sprint the finish line to be able to, then walk your bike back to the Little River Domain for coffee, food outlets and entertainment before prize giving commences. Click here to enter this great new event! (Must be 14 or over at event date)
