The fifth and final race in the A1 New Zealand Series is the Absolute Wilderness Adventure Race, on the 17th and 18th of February 2018, designed and organised by AR legend, Nathan Fa’avae. Teams of 3 or 4 compete against the course, the environment and some battle against each other in the race.
Teams are required to navigate a series of checkpoints using only a map and compass to guide them while transitioning between several disciplines, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Rafting and Navigation.
Teams will have to push their boundaries and nail their teamwork just to finish. Winning will require willpower to rush hard, mastery of all disciplines, and a little luck. The event welcomes all abilities with a range of course options and categories that will have teams on course between 3 and 24-hours.
