At That’s It we’re committed to supporting local events that showcase the best that nature has to offer. From the mountains to the coast, you’ll find us supporting the following outdoor events throughout Aotearoa.

Rangitikei Adventure Race

The Rangitikei Adventure Race is based around different sections of the Rangitikei River.

At 254kms the Rangitikei River is one of New Zealand’s longest and most scenically stunning rivers. Its sheer vertical papa (clay) white cliffs (which are unique to this part of NZ) and deep canyons provide the perfect setting for adventure activities such as white water rafting and kayaking.

This year the Rangitikei Adventure Race will include a 6hr duathlon and 12hr paddling and duathlon options and all will be run in a rogaine style format. 

The Rangitikei Adventure Race is part of the Adventure1 series that brings together 4 events around the country to form a National Championship. The 12hr paddling event is part of the A1 Series.

Love Taupō Trail Festival

The latest event in the total sport line-up is the Love Taupō Trail Festival, and is 100% about bringing a wide range of people to participate in a quality line-up of trail-based events.

Beyond the events, it’s about connecting with others (and ourselves) on and off the trails, to make new friends, to catch up with old ones, to capture valuable whanau time, to make new memories, and to celebrate and cherish the magic of nature and outdoors, and the benefits we get by being outside in nature.
