Please also be aware that we won’t be able to offer any size exchanges at the event registration, as this is an event exclusive production run. Please use the measurements in the sizing chart to ensure that you get the perfect fit for you.


Each month we will be sharing a blog from the the Alterno Foundation sponsored team. To kick their journey off, here they share the story behind the team’s inception, and aspirations to turn their bad luck around.


With summer approaching, we’re hoping the rain will ease, and it will become a lot easier to motivate and get out training with your team mates. We’ve got some great partners who can help:


Similar to previous years, James will be sharing his fantastic Training Programs and Notes to help you structure your efforts, use your time well, and recover in between. We expect programs to kick off late October so keep an eye on the event Facebook page for details on how you can sign up.

James will also be delivering some Webinars and coordinating the running some Skills Training Sessions in each of the main disciplines in tandem Rachel Smith from Navigation North. Again details are on their way so keep your eyes peeled to the event Facebook page for more.

Choosing food for your body (fuel) can be a complex process, both in training and again on race day. To help ensure you have a great event, PURE Sports Nutrition co-founder and qualified sports nutritionist Marewa Sutherland has put together their top tips for you. Read these here.


Our sponsor family is growing! We are excited to have The Mighty Food Kitchen and Adventure Magazine joining us in 2018. Makers of truly luxurious granola, The Mighty Food Kitchen will be giving you a chance to sample their delicious new products. Seriously yum!  And we’re looking forward to working with Adventure Magazine to share with you all the best stories, news and gear reviews on things adventure and outdoor.

Please show your thanks for their supporting the event by choosing their brands when you can.


Wow, if we hadn’t previously sounded busy, things are really cranking into gear now as we move into the final 6 months of detailed preparation to the event weekend. We have a tonne of things happening, in the planning, and on the cards very shortly, which we look forward to sharing with you (as well as keeping secret from you) before race day. Right now, don’t forget to finalise your teams Hoodie, and book your tickets for the perfect pre-event motivational evening with your teammates and girlfriends, when our Gutsy Girls Adventure Film Tour comes to a town/city near you.

Kindest regards…  Neil, Katrine & Heather
