What's New for 2017

They're off!

8 Jan 17 Another hint. The 2017 event will include those rugged areas round Wellington that we normally consider too steep. (You can do parts on foot remember!)  Thoroughly in the Aka's tradition....

13 Dec 16: Entries are now open. The planners have released the following hint: the 2017 event will be close to Wellington.

9 Dec 16: Team appointed for 2017 event. Which will be a "NOT the Ak Attack", ie somewhere else. But just as rugged. Date 29 Jan 2017. Course design well under way.

What Is It?

The Akatarawa Attack is a Mountain Bike Rogaine, usually set in the rugged wilds of the Akatarawa ranges north of Wellington. A full day's challenge for any keen mountain biker - its your chance to ride a variety of tracks from 4WD to single track at your own pace. Its a mountain bike race with a difference and where you get to choose your own course. A race where the fastest and fittest are more often out witted by sly and cunning. Are you up for the Adventure?


The entry fee is $50 per person for the 8 hour event and $40 per person for the 4 hour event. There's an Earlybird discount of $10 by New Year's Eve PLUS a $10 discount for orienteering or rogaining club members. (Hint: you can join Orienteering Hutt Valley here, if you're new it costs hardly more than the discount!)  Halve everything for 2017 full-time students. The entry fee includes a great map of the area, land access, token prizes and a free lunch after the event.
