We are super proud to be partners with Banks Peninsula Adventure Race, an exciting new event run as a fundraiser for junior orienteering in Canterbury, to help get the young guns on the road to Russia!
Join us Sunday December 1st in a mystery location, 1.5 hrs drive from Christchurch on the stunning Banks Peninsula!
Adventure Racing is an exciting & challenging team sport. It involves travelling on foot and by mountain bike to collect checkpoints marked on a map. The course will take teams on an exciting, cross country adventure through native bush, streams, farmland and trails. The course will be kept secret until the day of the race and you will receive your maps before race start so you can plan your strategy and route choice.
The 10 hour event is designed to be an exciting challenge for more experienced adventure racers. The fastest teams are expected to complete this course (including optional controls) in around 8 hours.
The navigation in the 10hr race will be challenging and will require a competent navigator in your team. There will also be technically challenging sections of mountain biking that may require riders to get off and walk.
The 6 hour event is designed to be an easier introduction to the sport requiring a lower level of fitness and experience.
To complete the 6 hour event you will need to be able to jog/walk approx. 10km off road, and mountain bike approx. 25km on very hilly 4wd trails. Distances will be longer if you are collecting optional checkpoints.Event Information
You can race in a team of 3 or 4 people.
