Chopper Challenge

If you enjoy trail running – or road running – and you’re keen to take on a challenge in the new year (gasp! Yes, it’s almost that time of year) – then you’re already in a great position to transition into training for an obstacle course race.

Best shoes and socks for winter

If you’re a trail runner in Auckland, you’ll know tracks in winter get super wet and muddy. Most of the time when the tracks are dry, you don’t need to pay as much attention to what you put on your feet.

Having the right socks and shoes will make all the difference to your performance – and your feet will thank you too.

Chopper Challenge

There’s nothing like a good obstacle course race to get the adrenaline pumping – rope climbs, army crawls, sticky mud – it’s all part of the fun.

But this next adventure is something a little special and different. 

Matakana X Race

A couple of weekends ago, I competed in my first obstacle course race (OCR) for the year with my friend Scotty. It’s a race we’ve competed in annually for a couple of years called Matakana X Race. Before Tough Mudder & Spartan made it to New Zealand, it was really one of the only quality OCR race’s in the North Island.
