In short what you need to know!

Unsure of what the Te Anau Enduro really is? Let's break it down:

  • 3 separate laps (Kayak, Mountain Bike & Run)
  • Each lap takes roughly 30 minutes to complete. Therefore, lap distances vary based on exercise mode to make them as even as possible.
  • You can do whatever lap you want to do, whenever! If kayaking isn’t your thing no stress! You can simply bike run for the duration of the race. However, be aware bonus points are given when all three exercise modes are completed in a specific order (check ‘Categories and Points System’ tab to make the most of our scoring system).  
  • You will have your own designated transition area to leave your gear and put your feet up for lunch between laps if you wish.
