Opotiki Motu Challenge

 

MOTU CHALLENGE

Opotiki's Motu Challenge is one of the country's premier multisport races.  Winners include Richard and Elina Ussher and Sam Clark.

A gruelling but fun event held in and around Opotiki, in the Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand, the Motu has four stages: 65km mountain bike, 17km run, 52km road cycle, and final multisport stage that includes a 27km kayak, 8km road cycle and 3km run to the finish.


MOTU 160

Calling all cyclists! This event was run for the first time in 2009 and is in popular demand. The 160 race is run together with the Motu Challenge multisport event. You can enter either an individual or a two person team. The 65km mountain bike will be raced with the Motu Challenge competitors. Multisporters will then split off at Motu to complete their run, ride and paddle; while Motu 160 competitors will get straight onto their road bikes and cycle 90km back over Traffords Hill and down Waioeka gorge to Opotiki.
