SKI SECTION – 2KM
Start high on the slopes of the Mt Hutt Ski Area with a mass start at the peak. You will run 100m to your skis or snowboard followed by a Giant Slalom style race down to the base area through a number of gates ending at the transition stage for the transfer to the Bike Section.
MT BIKE SECTION – 18KM
From the Mt Hutt Base Area you switch to your mountain bike for a heart stopping bike ride down the access road (dirt). It may seem all downhill when you drive it but be prepared to do a bit of peddling. Individuals will require at least one support person at this transition.
RUN SECTION – 12KM
At the bottom of the access road at the corner of Highway 72 the run section begins. Expect some road, some trail, some water, and maybe even a bit of mud! The run section ends at the world famous Blue Pub in Methven (for a well deserved drink!)
