We are excited to announce that Saturday 27th March 2021 is now set as the date for our next event – this will be our 6th year!!

Pre-registrations open Monday, 1st February 2021. Don’t miss your spot.





Sadly we had to cancel our 2020 event, but we are pleased to be able to offer this fantastic opportunity once again.

The Wanaka Trail Ride offers a unique and stunning, all-abilities trail bike ride over Deep Creek, Long Gully & Lindis Peak Stations. Riders have the rare opportunity to explore private high country farmland, whilst helping to raise funds for Wanaka Primary School and Montessori Children’s House.

Tracks will include family, intermediate, advanced and expert trails as well as a pee-wee track for children.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous land owners & loyal supporters for their continued support, they make this event possible.

Thank you so much to Sharlene and Denis Nyhon and Lucy Annan and Simon Maling, for your generosity by allowing us to access your land.

To our loyal sponsors and supporters, your contributions are immeasurable and are so important to the success of this event.

To our wonderful volunteers, thank you for all the time and effort you put into this event – it is truly appreciated!

We cannot wait for March 27th 2021!

Thank you to all the riders that have supported this event, year after year.

Your support with this fundraising event means so much to the children, teachers and families associated with Wanaka Primary School, and Montessori Children’s House Wanaka. Over $140,000 has been raised enabling our two schools to improve their facilities and have access to some wonderful new learning resources.

The following video of the 2019 Wanaka Trail Ride was made by Ollie Larkin from Vision Workshop.  Ollie is a 18 year old full-time film-maker based in Wanaka.
