Run across the stunning Hunua Ranges, traverse challenging waterways, mountain bike through rich native New Zealand bush, and navigate your team through an untouched scenic trail route.

The Great Adventure Race is back on Saturday 17th March 2018, and we’re looking for teams of four to take on this epic challenge.


For the first time this year, we have two course options.

Shorter course:
3-6 hours, perfect for those who are taking on their first endurance race.

Full course:
6-9 hours, our original complete course for those who are up to the extra challenge.

Teams of four must include one member of the opposite sex, and you must have one confident navigator to get you from the start to finish line.

The Race is physically demanding, but don’t be put off – we will provide you with a thorough training programme and an excellent field workshop run by Race Director Alan Nelson.

Your team will also need to create a support crew of four to help you at transition zones and ensure you stay focused, energised and hydrated throughout the day.

To enter, 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 by March.

We’d love for you to join us! If you have any questions about the race, please get in touch with Nicky on Nicky@curekids.org.nz
