The first race in the A1 New Zealand Series will be the inaugural Marokopa Munter 24 Hour Adventure Race, on the 14-15th of October. The event will be held in the Marokopa/Waitomo area that is one of the North Island's best-kept secrets.
The region is packed with adventure potential and is just under a two hours drive from New Plymouth and 90 minutes from Hamilton, which makes it an easy access location from all over the North Island.
Teams should expect a good, tough examination of their route finding skills in New Zealand classic bush country. The organisers say teams should be warned: “you will need a high level of fitness, experience and skill - this is not an entry level race!”
