ENTRIES DISAPPEARING FAST – JOIN OVER 728 WOMEN ALREADY ENTERED

No one likes to miss out, but at the current rate entries are coming in it’s looking likely the 2017 Spirited Women Adventure Race in Taupo next April will be sold out very soon. So if you’re excited about taking part in this adventure, we strongly encourage you to get a team together and get your entry in early to avoid disappointment. We have no doubt you will have plenty of fun and laughter, letting out shrieks for fear and hoots (or possibly tears!) of joy with your friends/family/colleagues over the course of a seriously adventurous weekend.

REMINDER — NO SUPPORT CREW ARE REQUIRED IN 2017

That’s right, you read correctly, the 2017 Spirited Woman Adventure Race in Taupo will be unsupported, and therefore teams will not require a support crew to race. This means teams have to be self-sufficient, transitioning from discipline to discipline themselves and prohibited from receiving outside assistance during the course of their race.

Whilst you don’t have to rope in a support crew, we welcome and encourage supporters (husbands, kids, partners, family and friends) to accompany teams to Taupo to enjoy a fantastic weekend away in Taupo. Supporters are free to cheer on and take photos of Spirited Women at the start and finish, plus points during their adventure, and there will be plenty of spots to course to view the race.

There are however a few things which will be important for teams to understand

  • It will be useful for teams to have two vehicles (or more) with one (or two combined) capable of transporting all the team bikes out to the start; otherwise a teammate(s) will have to hitch a ride with another team back to pick up their vehicle(s) left at the start. Supporters can obviously play a part in transporting teams and their bikes to the start.
  • Women who ride in clipless mtb shoes will need a suitably sized pack capable of carrying their running shoes as well as all their individual and any shared team compulsory gear. TIP – You may like to lace your running shoes with elastic laces for a quick transition in and out of them!

FUNDRAISE TO HELP MOVE OVER CANCER & WIN

The Spirited Women Adventure Race has formed a relationship with PINC & STEEL – Cancer Rehabilitation Trust.

The PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Programs provide individualised, prescribed rehabilitation to women and men diagnosed with cancer; helping them heal as well as possible, and function at optimal levels through every stage of their treatment and recovery. They are specifically designed to help maximise recovery, regain physical and emotional strength, and improve body confidence and control.

The spirited Women everyday hero fundraising campaign is now live at www.everydayhero.co.nz/event/Spiritedwomen 

We encourage teams to set-up an ‘Everyday Hero’ fundraising site at the link above and raise money for the cause.

To motivate you to fundraise we have teamed with our event sponsors to offer a wonderful prize for the team with the greatest number of donations and the team who raises the most money. Get into it!

PARTING WORDS

We are looking forward to drawing out the Lucky Super Early Bird Entry prize winners and surprising some women/teams with good news over the weekend. Cross those fingers and toes you are one of the lucky winners.

Kindest regards
Neil & Katrine
