History & Photos


Murchison 2014 - teams rafted the Buller River and explored the Matataki Valley, the race finished in Murchison with the highlights being the Mole Tops and teams exploring areas that had interesting earthquakes faults and areas with rich mining history.

Murchison 2015 - back in Murchison but this years course rafted a different section of the Buller River and teams spent the day in the Owen Valley into wild and remote places. The long course teams summited the dizzying heights of Mount Murchison.

Hammer Springs 2016 - Hot and dry and windy. Team rafted the Waiau River and the longer course teams had a canoe section added in. Mainly on private land, the teams mountain biked and hiked into some areas not normally accessible with some complex navigation challenges woven into the course. The area was such with wild berries!

St Arnaud 2017 - Based around Rainbow ski area, teams rafted the Wairau River and biked and hiked in the alpine regions, unique for a 1-day adventure race. Poor visibility in the high country made the navigation extremely difficult but the adventure rating went off the scale!
