The Long Course - Habit Health Kaiteriteri Gold
16km - highest point 280m - elevation gain 400m - ages 14+
The 16km Long Course encompasses all that the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park has to offer.
Beginning from the rear of the Camp, the Estuary Trail provides a serene “ warmup” spreading the competitors before they hit the “main course”.
The next 4km follows an undulating contouring track through shady bush as you begin to circumnavigate the entire 180 hectares of the Park.
Then the climbing begins in earnest. The climb is of easy gradient and is totally runnable and an achievable challenge, as you ascend the newly formed Piki ki te Rā ( Climb to the Sun ) for 3km and 200m in ascent, meandering its way through the forest with several panoramic viewing points along the way, highlighting the vista of Kaiteriteri Recreational Reserve and its incredible beaches, Adele Island and the Abel Tasman National Park.
