The Riverhead Backyard ReLaps Ultra

(Friday midday 3rd April 2020 to ??? )

Complete one 6.7km lap within an hour, restart again on the hour….continue…until only one person is left to complete a lap.

The Riverhead Backyard ReLaps Relay

(4th to 5th April 2020 )

A relay for teams of 2, 4 or 6 people completing as many laps as possible (non-stop) in either 8, 12 or 24 hours.

One runner at a time on the course which goes through the tent city so you transition right outside your team’s tent!


Start either the ultra or the relay and you will go into the draw for our major spot prize – a weekend use of an Amarok.  We’ll announce the winner on the Sunday after the 24hour relay finishes.

With 190kW under the hood and 580Nm of torque, the Amarok is more than capable of handling anything you throw at it, and as we know… tough comes from within.

Based in Riverhead Forest, Auckland

A collaboration between Lactic Turkey Events and the Riverhead Rayments

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 organised events that are fundraisers for local schools, The Graeme Dingle Foundation, KidsCan, 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.
