The Race That's Saving Auckland's Island Sanctuary, Motutapu

Partners Life DUAL - Motutapu - Rangitoto Traverse sporting event


Staged on one of the most prized landscapes in New Zealand - the Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu and Rangitoto - the Partners Life DUAL is an incredible event offering trail run and walk, off-road triathlon and mountain bike options. Produced in partnership with Total Sport and Motutapu Restoration Trust, participation in this event contributes directly to the preservation and reforestation of Motutapu, us!

The Partners Life DUAL is a once a year opportunity. At no other time throughout the year are people able to participate in an event of this nature, and at no other time are mountain bikes allowed on the islands.

Entry numbers for the 2017 Partners Life DUAL Motutapu-Rangitoto Traverse are limited due to the nature of these two protected islands, so make sure you get your entry in early!
