CHECK OUR INSTA FEED TO SEE WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO

Kia ora koutou katoa,

Wow!!! Who would have thought we'd be in the same position that we were this time last year! Gutting!!!

Given confirmation today that Auckland will stay at COVID Alert Level 4 for another 2 weeks, we are unfortunately having to cancel the first event in the Bivouac Outdoor Wild Auckland Series (again!), which was planned for 19th September at Tawaharanui. Given the event is just a few days after the next announcement on alert levels, it's pretty much impossible to think we'd be at alert level one by the 19 September.

We are super disappointed to cancel another event, especially the first in this cool series of trail events aimed at getting people into new areas. It's getting pretty hard to organise events in this environment. We know people have invested time in training and were looking forward to another cool venue. We all must cross our fingers that we’re in a better COVID state to allow the remaining events in the series.

We’ve emailed participants who have entered already with refund options.

We are so very sorry to have to cancel another event. It is always our pleasure to get people into the outdoors having fun and it brings us such disappointment not to be able to do this.

Ngā mihi nui

Another great event done - our TrailNav event at Tapapakanga Regional Park was a great success - lots of happy people navigating around a stunning park and trying different activities including some work for the rangers of the park💪💪 Now it’s just under 3 weeks to go until we are Lapsin' around Riverhead for the 2020 @riverheadbackyardrelaps !
The Riverhead ReLaps @volkswagen_nz #amarokv6 was looking great and got lots of questions!

How's your prep going? #exploreauckland #lastpersonstanding #backyardultra #ultrarunning #trail #nztrailrunning

A favourite Part of our @bivouacoutdoor Wild Auckland Trail Series is the 2km Kids Dash. We had 50 kids start yesterday at the second event in the series at Te Arai Regional Park. The ranged from the confident speedsters to the wee under 5yrs who has mum@or dad along for support. All finishing with a smile after a hard effort! Love it!! #wildauckland #trailrunningnz #run #kidsrun #kidsdash #trailrunning #tearairegionalpark @tailwindnutritionnz @t8.run @ironoakfs ...

Now is a great time to explore new trails while the Waitakere Ranges and other parks are closed.
Alongside Lactic Turkey Events we present this series of achievable, approachable and not overly—competitive events that are affordable and fun for all levels of fitness and experience.

So get out of the city, come experience some stunning parks and enjoy their amazing views and scenery.

As part of the Bivouac Outdoor Wild Auckland Series we offer a Kid's Dash course which lets the under 14 year olds take part and experience the joy of wilderness trails.
By introducing them gently, we enable them the grow the skills and enjoyment levels to want more as they become fully fledged trail peeps.

For those less confident adults can accompany them around the course.
Our 2-3km trails for the Kids Dash are a great introduction and at only $10 per child an affordable start too!

Well done to all those that came to the first Wild Auckland event in the 2019 series. Thanks for supporting the event and we hope you enjoyed it. We had 300 people which was bigger than any of the events in the inaugural series last year.

Check out this lot just before the start of the 2km kids dash - woohoo!

ABOUT LACTIC TURKEY

Lactic Turkey organises a variety of events throughout the year with the aim of getting people into the outdoors!

Our events are aimed at people of all ages, fitness levels and skills. We want people to get out and give our adventures a go, relishing the buzz that comes with conquering the challenge.

Our professionally organised events inspire a real sense of self-belief in the participants when obstacles are overcome.

The common profile of a Lactic Turkey competitor is a person that wants to get into the outdoors to experience life and conquer the physical and mental challenges that inevitably arise. We as event organisers are active in outdoor pursuits and enjoy exploring new places. Lactic Turkey Events likes to give back to the communities who support our events.

We have events that are fundraisers for a local schools, KidsCan StandTall Foundation, The Auckland Zoo Orangutan programme and The Westy Trust amongst others.

We also support youth into the outdoors by sponsoring youth events like the Hillary Challenge and Get2Go and organising for the Auckland Council a Secondary Schools Sustainability Adventure Race.
