The 2022 series kicks off on the South Island on 23 April with Kaikoura Adventure Race. Hosted by adventure racing mavens Tane Cambridge and Tim Farrant, this 24-hour race was a big success in its inaugural year and is back to deliver yet another epic race.

On 14 May, the A1 series heads to the North Island for Rangitikei Adventure Race.

On 6 Aug August, the A1 series heads to Whangamata for the Bivouac Outdoor Adventure Race.  Athletes will get to experience a mix of beautiful coastal beaches and native forests. The event requires no support crew and with Whangamata only being 2 Hours from Auckland Airport it’s easy for teams to get to from anywhere. There is also a range of other shorter events so bring the Family and all have a go. 

Next the series heads to Marokopa in November for the 24hr Marokopa Munter. The rugged Waitomo area offers such a variety of spectacular terrain, mixed in with a healthy dose of rogaine, strategy and good old fashioned hills. The ‘Munter’ provides a quality hit out in preparation for GODZone at Rotorua, as well as an achievable race for intermediate level racers. Get 'Munted!

Finally, the 2022 A1 NZ series will wrap up with the new 48 hr True West adventure race by Nathan Fa'avae on the South Island.  Not only will this race likely crown the next NZ adventure racing champions but also will be host to the first-ever A1 World Cup Final
