Goldrush Multisport Event
|Goldrush is a 375 km 3 day multisport race, including kayaking,
mountain biking, running and road biking.
The inspiration for Goldrush was derived from the historic footsteps
of the pioneers who came to Central Otago searching for gold in the
1860s. The athletes who take on Goldrush do so with no less grit and
spirit than those first pioneers. Historic relics of those, who carved
the landscape, accentuate the course.
The Central Otago landscape is magnificent with stark contrasts. It is
an environment is unequalled in New Zealand. The contrasts of the
environment are mirrored in the race itself. The racing is passionate
and intense, yet set within a spirit of camaraderie and enjoyment.
The evening campsites are mellow and highlighted by the
enthusiasm of the local communities who host the event each night.
Sign up for an autumn multisport experience unlike any other!
You won't be disappointed!
“The Goldrush will continue to draw me back each year as it always
promises an unforgettable experience. A special mix of people make
the race memorable, all sharing in a journey through the most
spectacular multisport course in the country. The whole weekend is a
journey of discovery and the most satisfying event I have ever
completed. The 16th edition cannot come quickly enough!”
