Are you doing the Spring Challenge in Cromwell in September, or just want to brush up on your adventure skills? Do you want to learn from two, top international adventure racers… plus have a fun, fitness weekend away with your teammates in a beautiful place?

The Spring Challenge Adventure Training Weekend in Wanaka focuses on paddle training, you can do a navigation clinic, learn about mountain bike maintenance/tuition, then put all your new map-reading skills into practise by taking part in a rogaine (navigation event) on the Sunday.

Adventure Racing World Champion Bob McLachlan and world-class navigator and 3 x 12-hour Spring Challenge winner Nora Audra have adventure-raced all around the world for many years and want to share their wealth of knowledge to help enhance your Spring Challenge experience.
