2018 will be the 18th edition of the Northland Event after 2001 saw a keen group of riders take part in the very successful inaugural event.

2018 saw some major course changes to the event that were well received. The changes brought challenges, enjoyment and a refreshing point of view from what we have seen for the past editions.

The event will follow Northland’s fully sealed Twin Coast Discovery Highway which touches New Zealand’s essence: unsurpassed nature estate, scenery, fishing, diving, walks, culture and heritage, golf, food, wine and people.

You will discover New Zealand in a nutshell. A must for participants from both within New Zealand and overseas, the event takes in both the East Coast and West Coast of Northland.

All abilities are welcome to participate – elite riders, competitive masters, weekend warriors, cycling tourists, and social or corporate groups – this is a fun few days with a great bunch.

About this Venue

The ASB Stadium, which reopened in May 2002, is now a true multipurpose facility, with a huge variety of events held annually. Now with a floor area in excess of 1700m2.

The new timber sports floor is made of European beech from Norway, while the sub-floor system is the world renowned Junckers from Germany. The combination is regarded as one of the best for indoor sports stadiums and this is backed by players from the wide variety of sports played on the floor.

The design of the new stadium also allows for the drop down curtains, which provides opportunities for many smaller community groups to afford use of the floor space.

Up to 3 different user groups can now access the floor simultaneously.

Northland's premiere indoor sports stadium has the following:

Seating capacity - 600-1700 people comfortably. Situated on Kensington Park with user friendly flow from outdoor to indoor. Sutherland Security 'Rockwall' - Northland's only commercial indoor climbing wall. Two canteens (indoor and outdoor). Four spacious changing rooms (indoor and outdoor). One office. Public toilets (indoor and outdoor). First aid room. Disabled access to facilities. Free sealed parking for 350 cars.

The stadium is available for hire on a casual or regular basis. Ideal for sports tournaments and events, trade shows, concerts, exhibitions, shows and as a home for any size community sports group.
