Join the race that's saving Auckland's Island Sanctuary, Motutapu

Motutapu & Rangitoto Islands, Auckland, New Zealand
Saturday 21 March 2020


An award-winning day of trail adventures, the Partners Life DUAL is also your only opportunity to do an event (or to mountain bike) on the protected Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu & Rangitoto.

Produced in partnership with the Motutapu Restoration Trust, participation in this event contributes directly to the preservation and reforestation of Motutapu. We’ve raised over $300k to date.

With kids activities, a range of courses, and medals for all finishers there’s fun and adventure for the whole whanau. Entry numbers are limited due to the nature of these two protected islands and usually sell out completely, so be sure to get in early!


All event options will likely sell out – so get in early!


Every entry equals 4 new trees on Motutapu.


Motutapu is a crucial predator-free habitat for kiwi.


Be part of the largest restoration endeavour in New Zealand.

We take waste seriously.

We’re working hard to reduce our environmental impact


We have removed disposable cups from all aid stations. Please remember your reusable cup, hydration pack or water bottle to fill up! We’ll have collapsible silicone cups available at event base for $5. 

We will also have different bins for compost, recycling and rubbish at event base. Please take care to bring all your rubbish back off the course and dispose of it properly.


See you there!
