Are you ready for your next adventure with Cure Kids?

Does the idea of running, hiking, mountain biking, traversing waterways, navigating and route finding excite or interest you?

If so, we’ve got the perfect challenge for you to take on with three others to test your physical and mental ability.

The Great Adventure Race is back in 2018, and we’re looking for teams of four (at least one member needs to be of the opposite sex) to compete in a multi-sport event.

This year, we have two course options: 

  • Short course – 3-6 hours
  • Full course – 6-9 hours

The race is physically demanding, and at least one team member needs to be a confident navigator.

Don’t let the physical pressure of the race put you off, as you have over a year to train for it!

Alan Nelson, the Great Adventure Race Director, has produced a thorough training programme and will run an excellent field workshop to ensure you are well prepared.

This workshop will be held on Sunday 11 February 2018 at Camp Adair, Hunua, and will include a morning of theory and motivation, followed by an afternoon of fieldwork. This is a great opportunity to learn, and have some fun in the field, and attendance is mandatory for all new teams.

As well as this, a support crew of four will help you at transition zones and ensure you stay focused, energised and hydrated throughout the day.

To enter the Great Adventure Race for Cure Kids, each team must raise the following:

  • Registration fee: $2,300
  • Minimum fundraising target: $8,000
  • Total amount needed: $10,300

Your team will work together with the support of a Cure Kids fundraising manager, to put together a personalised plan to reach your fundraising target over the next 12 months.

If you have any questions about the race, please get in touch with Nicky on
