Road works causes change of course for 2021:
Due to major Road Works at Omoto and Kaiata we have to change the course for the 2021 event. It will now be a 140km still starting at Moana - Lake Brunner and out and back to Kumara Domain. The changeover for the Teams will be at the turnaround. The Enduro will be 280km with 2 out and backs with the turnaround at the start finish line in Moana for the second lap.
Due to Covid-19 - All 2020 Registered competitors have been automatically transferred to the 2021 event.
2019 saw Around Brunner have a major change, with the Start and Finish being at Moana Hotel Lake Brunner. This was a huge success and will remain this way now.
This changes the race significantly and eliminates the traffic issues in central Greymouth and the old Taramakau Rail Bridge is no longer with a brand new bridge across the Taramakua which you won't even notice as a bridge. This makes this iconic event a brand new race.
Both the Around Brunner 130km and Enduro 260km will be held.
This fantastic event is in its 14th year.
Around Brunner caters for all competitors from the Elite rider through to the Recreational Rider with age group categories throughout. We'll even cater for those that want to ride their e-Bike in the event, as this keeps so many riders active. Riding an e-Bike means you're non-competitive but still doing the event and eligible for spot prizes.
Around Brunner started as a 130km sealed circuit cycle ride taking you through some of the most stunning scenery New Zealand has to offer. In 2015 the Enduro, 2 laps of the traditional ride being 260km was introduced and in 2019 the change of the start/finish to Moana Lake Brunner.
The Teams event will still be held with the changeover at Kumara Domain.
