WILD AUCKLAND BRINGS OUT THE EXPLORER IN ALL OF US!

The Wild Auckland trails series is a series of trail run or walk events that aims 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 their key value of “professionalism in jandals”, Lactic Turkey Events presents 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.

From the Kids Dash (2-3km) to the Expedition (long course) 18-25km  there is a distance option for everyone.

So put on your adventurer shoes and join us to explore new areas, to stretch the legs and to treat the eyes to sweet views and scenery!

OBJECTIVES OF WILD AUCKLAND!

  • Fun, achievable, adventurous off-road runs – capturing the adventurer in all of us!

  • Family friendly – with courses for the whole family

  • Affordable

  • Getting people out of the city to experience the parks and enjoy their amazing views and scenery

  • Showcase and introduce people to some of the newer Auckland Regional Parks

  • Show people alternatives to the Waitakere Ranges trails, now they are closed due to Kauri Dieback

  • Introduce people to camping in these parks – free camping the night before

We’re stoked to have Bivouac as our title sponsor!

Another event by Lactic Turkey Events

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.
