Race Details:

The course is made up of three separate laps - lake kayak, XC mountain bike and trail run, with each lap taking about 20 minutes to complete. You complete as many laps as you can on and around beautiful Lake Te Anau.

You can complete laps of any course you choose, in whatever order you choose, scoring a point for every completed lap. You can enter yourself as an individual, or as a team of up to three people, in either the four or six hour events.

Compete hard or enter for fun, there’s something for everyone.
Just make sure you enter a category which suits your level of fitness - and with the event catering from novices through to weekend warriors - everyone is welcome.

It’s a fantastic scene as rows of kayaks line the edge of the lake, smiles on the faces of participants, volunteers, and support crews alike.

There’s coffee (as if we would forget that), a sausage sizzle, a massage tent and a fluid station.

You can do whatever lap you want to do, whenever. If kayaking isn’t your thing no stress, you can simply bike or run for the duration of the race.

Spectators cheer you on while soaking up the scenic beauty of the lake and mountains.

Prepare for high-fives as you return through the bustling central transition area by the Marakura Yacht Club.

The beauty of the Te Anau Enduro is that if you start to feel fatigued, you can take a break at your transition area, refuel, rest and recharge before embarking on your next lap.

Picture your paddle cutting through the water on the glistening lake as you kayak through the sheltered area of Lake Te Anau between the Marakura Yacht Club and the float plane jetty - a distance of about 2.5km.

The 3km run course takes you through all sorts of terrain - forest stands, downhills through native bush, on road and off. Lap up the views of Lake Te Anau and the picturesque Lake Henry nestled in the midst of the equally beautiful Ivon Wilson Park - definitely one of Te Anau’s hidden gems.

The Mountain Biking Course takes advantage of the new Fiordland Trails Trust Cycle Trail between Marakura Yacht Club and the control gates, then continues along the Te Anau Cycling Inc XC single-tracks between the old and new Kepler carparks, before returning back toward the transition area along a mix of gravel, single track, grass and forest trails - a distance of about 6.5km.
