Auckland will be hosting the Torpedo 7 Spring Challenge North, all women adventure race.

Spring Challenge is one of the gems of New Zealand adventure racing, where 450 teams of three women take part in the adventure that includes rafting, mountain biking, hiking and orienteering.

3-hour (beginner) – Introduction to Adventure Racing. Rafting, non-technical mountain biking, trail and easy off-trail hiking – a bit of a challenge but nothing too silly. Navigation is basic level. Time range 3 to 6 hours.

6-hour (intermediate) – Something to get your teeth into. Rafting, mostly non-technical mountain biking but can have a few rugged bits linking the course together – walking with bike an option in these sections if you're a bit of a Nana (or officially a Nana). Hiking mostly can be on and off trails, can contain rough ground to pass over, slippery stuff, cow poos, stream crossings. Navigation is intermediate level, map and compass knowledge needed. (Unless you trust the team in front of you and you tuck in behind them). Time range 6 to 12-hours.

9-hour (advanced) – The epic version of the Spring Challenge, expect a mission! Time range 9 to 20-hours.
