Taranaki 6 Hour Adventure Race

Suitable for all adult ages and secondary school level. The main requirements are a reasonable level of fitness, the ability to ride a mountain bike, some navigation skill is an advantage and a sense of humour is a must!

The course will involve mountain biking and trekking as the main methods of travel. At all times navigation with a map will be key, and mystery activities may be included during the race to add an extra dimension.

The course is designed for all levels of skill and experience to have a challenging day out!


The actual course remains a secret until the day, but will be somewhere within 60 minutes drive from New Plymouth.
