If you are new to adventure racing or want to build your skills so you have the confidence to enter or to perform better and step up to a longer race category, then this is for you. Come along on your own or as a team.

kayaking, mountain biking and trail running (build your confidence)

Navigation tips and tricks (this is the key component of adventure racing)

Nutrition pre race and during the race (making your own real race food)

Mental motivation techniques (for yourself and your teammates)

Injury prevention (race to your potential and avoid letting your team down)


Gear choice and maintenance (bike repairs)

Fast and efficient transitions

Race day strategising

Team roles (everyone should have a job to do)

Answers and advice on any of your questions.

We will have specialists helping in different areas so you can maximise your learning and progress over the weekend.

We will be limited by numbers so if you think this sounds like something you need to attend register now by emailing: kym@nzadventureretreats.com
