Craters Classic 2017
We are calling for fantastic people to volunteer for the Craters Classic Mountain bike event in Taupo on Sunday the 11th of June 2017.
Based in the amazing geothermal landscapes of the Wairakei Resort, the Craters Classic provides an overall event experience that is tough to beat. While the “Classic” has a long and storied history stretching back well over a decade, its popularity has exploded in recent years.
The event has exploded in popularity. From 150 riders in 2014 the field size has nearly tripled. Two consecutive years of sold-out entries have led to a limit of 500 participants being imposed for 2017. A limit that is sure to be reached.
The Craters Classic mountain bike event is owned by the Taupo Mountain Bike club and managed by Nduro Events NZ. The proceeds go to the local trail charity Bike Taupo, and the Taupo Mountain Bike club. The 2016 event raised the over $5000 for them. In 2017 the aim is $10,000.
