10 Hour Race, Deans Bank, Wanaka

4 October 2017

The iconic Bike Wanaka 10 Hour Race proudly supported by the Bike Lounge will be heralding in the bike season on Sunday 22nd October 2017.

The 10 Hour Race is Bike Wanaka’s major fundraising event; all proceeds will go towards helping to build and maintain trails in the area like the Dean’s Bank track and Sticky Forest.

For the 2017 event, you can ride solo or in teams of up to five and we will be introducing a singlespeed category for those who feel 10 hours is too easy! The race runs from 9.00am until 7.00pm. For other mortals who feel they have been skiing too much and have only just dusted off their bike, we will be adding a five hour solo category. This will start at 2.00pm so you even get to sleep in!

The Race Village will be humming with great music, food, coffee, Bike Wanaka merchandise and the Bike Lounge mechanic station to sort out your ride. Wanaka Kids Club is hosting the kids zone with races and activities for balance bikers right up to the pedallers.

The event will be a super fun day for all riders, supporters and volunteers with a gold coin entry for the kids race and great prizes and spot prizes up for grabs for all categories.
