12hr Race | 29th May 2021 | Rangitikei, North Island
The 2nd race of the NZ series is the Rangitikei Adventure Race and is based around different sections of the Rangitikei River known as ‘The Jewel in the Crown’ of the region and thus gives its name to the surrounding district which in fact means “The Day of Striding Out” which is rather fitting for an adventure race!
At 240kms the Rangitikei River is one of New Zealand’s longest and most scenically stunning rivers. Its sheer vertical papa (clay) white cliffs (which are unique to this part of NZ) and deep canyons provide the perfect setting for adventure activities such as white water rafting and kayaking. The river is surrounded by some of the most scenic (and steep) farmland in NZ and is bordered by the Kaimanawa and Ruahine Ranges.Race over / See Results days, hours, minutes, seconds
