Participants in the Partners Life DUAL are walking, running, swimming or biking to help restore Motutapu Island. Every competitor equals 4 more trees on the island!
Motutapu Restoration Trust has just won an Australasian award for restoration excellence (from the Society for Ecological Restoration Australasia). This is the largest community-led conservation project on a pest free island in the country. Kiwi and takahe now thrive in the habitat created by volunteers. Every year Aucklanders in their thousands volunteer to plant, weed and work in the nursery.
DUAL participants contribute directly to this restoration – while enjoying Motutapu and Rangitoto on the biggest day of the year, with thousands coming out and enjoying a taste of the island! With 7 events there is something for everyone, from a 6km and 10km run/walk to a half and full marathon, to mountain biking, and an off road triathlon. This is the only chance for mountain biking on these islands.

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 on the island.
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 to get your entry in early!
