Welcome to the Spring Challenge! Spring Challenge North, a women adventure race.
Spring Challenge is one of the gems of New Zealand adventure racing, where up to 450- teams of three women take part in the adventure that includes kayaking, mountain biking, hiking and orienteering.
The Spring Challenge is an adventure race for women which began in New Zealand in 2007. It is a team event where 3-women do the entire course together, travelling through the stages as a unit - meaning - it is not a relay team where different teammates do different stages, in adventure racing, the whole team does everything.
Because navigation is a factor, each year the event has a brand new course in a different location, so even for the regular participants, it's always refreshed and exciting, plus there's not a big advantage over teams who are newcomers to the sport.
The first step of doing an adventure race is having an appetite for adventure and a desire to embark on a challenge. There are 3-main options for the event, 3, 6 and 9-hour options, plus categories within. Decide what suits your ability and taste best, then build a team of 3-women with a shared goal and ideally, similar ability.
