Description

Held every year on Easter Sunday, this event is a chance to celebrate the sealing of the Historic Raetihi-Pipiriki Road. There are four options for this route. There is an 18 km out-and-back cycle ride, suitable for all ages (still two big hills though), a 50 km ride that has 25 km of uphill (the Gutbuster), a 'downhill' option, for those who want to see the scenery without having to ride back up, and for those without wheels, an 18 km run on the original Gutbuster route.
