aro valley's favourite enduro returns

The Wellington Enduro Series returns to the swooping trails of Aro Valley and Te Kopohau, with the 2023 Waimapihi Enduro.

As with previous years, we'll have a hard and an intermediate course, with a mixture of the classics and some OG classics back in the mix. The race will have multiple timed stages, and a "king and queen of the hill" award for the fastest male and female riders, and a little less climbing on the Barking Emu stage. Honest.

Race courses will be announced closer to the event, and will include an intermediate and a hard course. The hard course will be longer, have a bit more climbing, and counts towards Wellington Enduro Series points.
Intermediate - will be suitable for riders happy with intermediate level trails
Hard - Faster, harder, and a wee bit more of an adventure. Anticipate a little bit more riding

**NOTE** Wellington Enduro Series points will only be available for those racing in the Hard category only!
