Listening to your feedback from the 2019 event, the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race will now be partnering with a local charity or cause that is specific to the region that the event travels to each year.

2020 Central Hawke’s Bay – Rotary River Pathways Trust

For the 2020 North Island event, we have formed a relationship with the Rotary River Pathways Trust, to help raise valuable funds for their cause. The Rotary River Pathways Trust is a local Central Hawke’s Bay group of trail builders who have a big dream of building and expanding the well-known Tuki Tuki Trail. They also are strong supporters of a range of other improvement projects, like local schools, community assets, and the arboretum.

The Tuki Tuki Trail (and mountain bike trails at the Gum Tree Park) is a network of trails for walkers and bikers, situated in Central Hawkes Bay between the townships of Waipukurau & Waipawa. It offers a wide variety of trails and tracks along the beautiful Tuki Tuki river. This trail has been fully supported and built by this Rotary River Pathways Trust, with many supporters along the way. 

They have already completed, a limestone pathway on both sides of the Tukituki River, 30+km walking/single mountain bike track, construction of a swing bridge, and stage one of the Gum Tree Farm mountain Bike Park. Phew… this group knows how to get the job done!

Future projects and what they are trying to achieve, construct a recreational walkway/cycle trail linking Waipukurau & Waipawa that expands the current Tukituki Trail, for locals and travellers of outside of the region (like you!) to enjoy the recreational use both walking & cycling of this trail.

For every $100 we contribute, one metre of professional built mountain bike trail will be laid. It’s super easy to donate through the Spirited Women event registration or click here (then click ‘shop’ link), to make a donation today.

2020 Alexandra – Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge Cycling & Walking Trails

For the 2020 South Island event, we have formed a relationship with the Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge Trail Trust to help raise valuable funds for their cause. The Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge trail trust is a local Central Otago group of trail builders who maintain and repair the well-known Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge walk and cycle trail.

The Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge is a network of trails for walkers and bikers. The Roxburgh Gorge walk and cycle trail begins at Alexandra to Lake Roxburgh Village. The Clutha Gold begins at Lake Roxburgh Village to Lawrence, combined that’s over 95km. This trail has been fully supported and built by the Clutha Gold & Roxburgh Gorge Trail Trust, with many supporters along the way.

It offers a wide variety of trails and tracks along the mighty Clutha River for locals and travellers of the outside of the region (like you!) to enjoy the recreational use both walking & cycling of this trail.
