Good bookings for bike event

Next year's Motatapu bike event is only 150 entries away from selling out.

Entries for the Iconic Adventures race opened in July and organisers say there has been a better pick-up from contestants than in previous years.

Motatapu's Tracey Neil said entries were growing steadily for all five events, which comprise the 47km mountain bike race, the triathlon, in which 100 people have entered so far, the off-road marathon run (300 so far), the 15km Miners Trail event (200) and the Motatapu multisport race (20), which is new for 2013.

Last year, the races attracted a record number of runners at 1264.

Entries for all races close on February 13. The race is on March 9.
