While we acknowledge above that we would love to be able to break more news and publish more original reporting on the New Zealand obstacle racing scene… the main barrier to this is the time it takes to research such content. How can we get around this? By more people raising their hand to write and report! We’ve had two people write content for the website so far, and these two people have day jobs and children and can’t write about everything they’d like to…

But if you’d like to share your knowledge, opinions, news, race reviews, race results etc on Obstacle Racers NZ, get in touch.

Let people know what’s happening at your local races!
