Big climbs, big descents, epic views.

Goldminer is the ultimate 40-kilometre endurance bike race that leads riders through an all-mountain course along Coronet Peak's iconic bike trails. This event is designed for mountain bikers who seek the challenge of both downhill and uphill riding (approx. 2700m of climbing) in one of New Zealand's most scenic locations.

Join us to race on some of your favourite Coronet Peak tracks including Dirt Serpent, Rude Rock, Zoot, Morning Glory and more! Course map is displayed below.

Due to the participation generated by last year, we're stoked to announce that we're also bringing back the Miniminer short course! Spanning approximately 20km of trails with 1350m of climbing. It's the perfect ride to test your skills and stamina without going all-in on the Goldminer.
