Another successful Northpower Wild Kiwi event

More than 600 people, some from as far away as Wellington, flocked to the 2023 The Northpower Wild Kiwi multi-sport event at Whangārei Heads over the weekend.

Total Sport’s Mark Fordham says a late surge of entries last week and on the day boosted numbers immensely.

“We had over 80 children in the Kid’s Dash alone which was awesome and when we were holding prize-giving later in the day, Paul Austin (who competes in his full fire suit in training for the Sky Tower Stair Challenge) crossed the finish line, so there was plenty of cheering for him.”

“I was also really impressed with the finishing times of so many primary and secondary school contestants.”

Mr Fordham says Total Sport is grateful for the sponsorship and support of Northpower, DOC, Bream Head Conservation Trust, local landowners, volunteers and marshals.

Northpower’s General Manager of People and Capability Andrea O’Brien is stoked with the day and says the company is already looking forward to getting behind the 2024 Northpower Wild Kiwi.

Our staff just love this event and they get their whole families involved so there is a really strong whānau feel to the day. We had a mix of staff returning to the event and plenty of newbies who enjoyed it.”

“I believe being outdoors and active is so important for the wellbeing of us all,” says Ms O’Brien.
