Merida Whaka 100

The Merida Whaka 100 is 100km of riding over a course that is predominantly single track. There is nothing else like it in New Zealand and is arguably New Zealand's toughest mountain bike marathon.

This is the fifth year of the event and it has garnered a reputation throughout New Zealand as being a fantastic achievement to complete. There are three courses offered: 25km, 50km and 100km. Plus a teams event with a 60km/40km split. For 2011 we are running a women's only wave start for the 25km race as well - to allow women competitors to get out there and experience the event without getting caught up in too much race traffic.

Regardless of what course you decide to race one thing is guaranteed: you will be racing in the best mountain bike venue in New Zealand. Forest roads, views and sweet single track set this event off from anything else on the race calendar.

Challenge yourself through some of the best single track trails in the world.

Meet at the Waipa Mountain Bike Carpark, on Waipa State Mill Road.
