What is KBAR?
It's the Kaiteriteri Beach Adventure Race!
The event caters for anyone who enjoys outdoor recreation in a fantastic location.
I've been a professional adventure racer and in my early days I spent most weekends exploring different corners of New Zealand doing the things I enjoyed. Having spent a lot of my life in the Kaiteriteri area and living just down the coast, it's always been a favorite place to train and chill out. The swimming and paddling is excellent, the mountain biking is brilliant and the trail running is wonderful, it doesn't get any better.
March is full swing summer at Kaiteriteri and the KBAR event is short enough to be a blast, the races have been designed so that there is plenty of free time, down time and spare time to soak up the place and spend it with family and friends.
Is KBAR only for Elite athletes? NO WAY, far from it, it's more for people who want a challenge, get fit and be part of something cool.
If you think the KBAR individual challenge is a bit much for you at the moment, no sweat, get a team together and have even more good times.
I can honestly say, the KBAR course, location and event is magic!
