The CAMELBAK Ruapehu Express is an epic adventure style event that involves a Mountain bike and a separate trail run/walk in the foothills of Mount Ruapehu.
The courses are all point to point with around 1000 adventurers starting at outlying positions then running, walking or mountain biking home to the Powderkeg in Ohakune for a well deserved beverage.
Yes it's a race with race bibs and timing, but you are welcome to just cruise if you want to and take in the spectacular scenery... It is your race at your pace.
Entry fees range from between $35- $120 plus transport costs. See the EVENT INFO page for full prices and info.
The 4th annual Camelbak Ruapehu Express will take place Saturday 23 February 2019.
We look forward to seeing you all on the start lines.
