Every year the event starts in a different town, Tairua in 2021, circumnavigating The Coromandel. The K2 is also one of the most scenic and varied races with the route traveling through sub tropical forest, pacific coastlines, rural farmland and the Pohutukawa coastline of the Hauraki Gulf.
There is a range of different options for all aspirations, with the full 200km solo race probably the toughest one-day road cycle race in the Southern hemisphere!
The Mito Q K2 is an extremely tough race with a number of significant climbs. We would recommend that you get some training in on the course prior to the big day.
We would also recommend that if you have any concerns about your health that you have a medical check prior to the event.
