Get out and be active in New Zealand’s great outdoors.
At XTERRA we want everyone to “live more”. Our focus is to inspire people to get out and be active in New Zealand’s great outdoors.
Since its inception 15 years ago, the XTERRA Rotorua Festival has grown to become one of the best XTERRA events in the world. Each year we offer nine events for competitors to choose from and are set in and around Rotorua’s Blue Lake and Whakarewarewa Forest. It is without question amongst the most beautiful scenery in New Zealand.
People of all abilities can participate and walk or run 5.5km, 11km, 21km on trails in stunning forest scenery.
The Duathlon Long Course includes 26km MTB and 11km run.
There’s also a 26km mountain bike event for general fitness athletes with some mountain bike experience.
The Individuals Short Course is 500m swim, 12km MTB and 5.5km run for those who want a less-demanding experience. The mountain bike course has been designed so it is not technical and 90% on open dirt roads.
The Individuals Long Course includes 1km swim, 26km MTB and 11km run for multisport, triathlon, mountain biking and general fitness athletes of all abilities. The course is not for novice mountain bikers. You can enter as an individual or as a team.
