  • Race Day: Team Theta leave it all out in the Hunuas

    Posted by Adrian


    In April 2013 we once again supported Cure Kids by participating in the Cure Kids Great Adventure Race. With the help and support of staff, clients, friends and family we raised $13,830 along the way and our Theta team once again starred with a very good third overall.



  • Anawhata Amble

    Posted by Adrian

    We met at North Piha car park on hot Auckland afternoon for another trek dreamed up in Alan’s head. Julia and I got the maps out and started to mark out the check points we have to get to. Off we went, a short run down North Piha Beach road and then up the hill into the bush. Read more...

  • Train tracks and bike repairs

    Posted by Julia.

    Maybe Alan would not confess it - but I’ll tell you now if you haven’t already guessed - he is a map geek. It may not be a revelation to some, but most people read books in their spare time, and although he does fit in a few about adventure travel, the rest of the time is spent looking at maps and planning a new adventure.

  • Karekare Tiki Tour

    It was 3 days after Julia and Alan had spent over 16 hrs mountain biking, trekking, wading, swimming, rock climbing, abseiling and rifle shooting to complete the ARC "12 hour" race; so an "easy" training day was on the cards!


  • Return to Riverhead

    With some trepidation we headed to Riverhead Forest for a Mountain Biking session. We have not been there since the "mudfest" training session last year (  ). Surely it can't be like that this year after such a long dry summer?  Read more...

  • Piha Run

    This week’s session was a bush run out the back of Piha. It was a hot afternoon and I was looking forward to a good bush run. Read more...

  • Peak bagging in the Hunuas

    Posted by Julia Moore.

    Why would you get out of your fluffy sleeping bag, even before sunrise on a Sunday morning, camping in beautiful weather at the Tapapakanga Regional Park? Read more...

  • The Pararaha Gorge

    Posted by Alan Moore

    For the 4th week of training our numbers had dwindled from six on the first week to just Adrian and me. I hope this decline reverses soon as I don't want to race alone!


  • Urban Adventure

    Posted by Jon Wardrop

    Instead of the wilds of the Waitak's Alan decided on a cycling adventure around Auckland. It was an excuse to check out the cycle tracks around the suburbs, the afternoon was mainly biking with a bit of running thrown in and orienteering to finish.  Read more...

  • Training Week 2 - Mountain Biking

    Posted by Adrian Simpson

    Week 2 saw the team dusting off their mountain bikes for a session from Karekare to Piha and back. For those not too familiar with this area of the country, there are a few hills to contend with. Read more...
