BIVOUAC OUTDOOR WILD AUCKLAND SERIES EVENT ONE: Muriwai, also called Muriwai Beach, is a coastal community on the west coast of the Auckland Region in the North Island of New Zealand. The black-sand surf beach and surrounding area is a popular recreational area for Aucklanders. This venue will offer coastal and forestry running and gives you the chance to experience Auckland’s famous black sand of the west coast, spectacular beaches and pine forest planted atop sand dunes. In the words of Sir John Kirwan - “The cliffs out at Muriwai Beach have to be one of Auckland’s most unique landscapes and the views out into the Tasman Sea are incredible” Our Muriwai event takes place on the 15th September.

Lactic Turkey Events are thrilled to be the curators of The Bivouac Outdoor Wild Auckland Series. This series of trail runs or walking events aim to introduce people to regional parks around the Auckland region that they might not have visited before. Now is a great time to explore new trails while the Waitakere Ranges and other parks are closed due to Kauri Dieback. Relying on our key value of “professionalism in jandals”, we present a series of events that are achievable, approachable, not overly—competitive (unless you want it to be), affordable and fun for all levels of fitness and experience. So bring out your inner explorer and come join us at any of the 4 events being held in 4 of Auckland's most stunning locations!

Pretty grim up the top of Rainbow Mountain today as we mark out the course, but the weather looks great for tomorrow’s event. The 42km event will climb this summit 4 times, twice for the 25km and just the once for the 17km. It’s worth it though - from the top on a good day, you can get an awesome view of Tarawera, Rotorua District and to the South West the Central North Island volcanos. The course is on a great variety of tracks from the beautiful DOC tracks going up and down Rainbow Mountain which go through geo-thermal activity, to private farmland tracks and forest roads.

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.
