We’re going wild for 2020!

Nestled on the West Coast just up the road from Westport is the small village of Mokihinui at the river mouth. To the west is the expansive Tasman Sea, to the east is mountains, rivers and raw adventure.

The event will be based from the reserve at Mokihinui, south of the river mouth. We are encouraging teams to camp in the area, there are two motor camps, one on either side of the river. Teams will not require a support crew. Teams and staff will manage the logistics for the race day. There will be a prologue on Friday night which will seed teams for the rafting stage.

This years Absolute Wilderness Adventure Race will have only 3-person teams.
