Welcome to the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race, where women team up, train, and have an absolute blast of an adventure together, side by side all the way.

The Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race is a social event, catering for all levels of fitness and experience. Teams of four women take part in a short, medium or long course adventure in the great outdoors. Travelling together in a team, they must navigate around a secret course by foot, mountain bike, and kayak, completing a few surprise mystery activities along the way. It strengthens bonds and relationships, bringing family, friends and work colleagues together for a weekend of unadulterated fun.

But the Spirited Women is far more than creating an unforgettable event experience shared among girlfriends; it’s about women making time for themselves, their health and fitness. For many participants, the journey to the event is the most cherished part. Regularly getting together as a team to train, learn new skills, and supporting one another to push their boundaries.

“This event defines the spirit of a kiwi woman – her give-it-a-go attitude, sense of adventure, a strong belief in her girlfriends and a desire to help them through difficult times and celebrate the good times.” – The spirit of a kiwi woman.

In 2016, the maiden Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race was played out in the North Island adventure hotspot – Rotorua. In 2017 we delivered the second event in another wonderful adventure playground – Taupo. Searching for greater adventure in 2018, the third annual event was transported to the sunny Whakatane/Ohope district. Heading east to discover the place where the first light shines each day – the fourth annual event was carried out in the stunningly beautiful and history-rich Tairawhiti Gisborne region. This coming year, the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race goes national, with both a South Island & North Island event. The South Island event will be held in the beautiful town of Alexandra in Central Otago. The North Island event will be held in fertile farm lands of the Central Hawke’s Bay.

Limited to 408 teams of four per event, we invite you to find your inner spirit, be brave, and together with your girlfriends make up a team to compete in what will be an absolute gem of an event experience.
