Around the Mountains Cycle Trail is gearing up to host the annual Down River Dash on 22 December.

Now in its 4th year, the event features a 23km time trial on the ATMCT from Centre Hill to the Mossburn Golf Course.

It’s gonna be ‘flat, fast and furious’ – a slight downhill gradient combined with a traditional tailwind often results in some very fast times!

It’s worth taking the time to soak up the spectacular river and mountain scenery on this picturesque excursion.

And to cater for those not keen on pedal power, there’s a 16km run on offer.

There’s plenty of merit and spot prizes up for grabs while enjoying a well-earned post-ride drink and BBQ at the Club Rooms.

Check out the details www.whitehillclassic.co.nz/down-river-dash/

Entries can be emailed or will be taken on the day.

Don’t miss your chance to shed some surplus kilos so you can tuck into Christmas dinner a few days later!
