The Kevin Blair Memorial Enduro (KBME) returns

for its second outing with a new name in memory of Kevin Blair who with NtrailZ has been fundamental in developing Tunnel Gully as an outdoor recreation area.

As with previous years, there will be a hard and an intermediate course. The race will have multiple timed stages, and a "king and queen of the hill" award for the fastest male and female riders.

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 Advanced category only!
