The Contact Epic is a journey of discovery, circumnavigating the shores of Lake Hawea, Wanaka, NZ. It is the longest and most scenic MTB event in NZ.

You have the choice of 160km, 125km, 95km or 35km legs. Plus a dedicated e-bike option for the 95km and 35km only.

Starts on the Hawea Dam and finishes in the garden bar of the Lake Hawea Hotel.

The event and land access is only available once a year. It takes in the breath-taking scenery of the Southern Alps, Mt Aspiring and traverses through two High Country Stations.

While achievable for the weekend warrior, it is also regarded as NZ's test piece MTB race for endurance athletes and people with a sense of adventure.

This race is about old school mountain biking. Do it on your own terms.

No compulsory bike checks.
No gear lists.
No cotton wool.
No excuses.
