School teams enjoy an excellent adventure
New Plymouth Girls' High School and New Plymouth Boys' High School adventure racing teams were in outstanding form at Kawerau last weekend.
A total of five teams from the New Plymouth high schools joined another 115 teams competing in the Kawerau Gravity Sports Club six-hour adventure race.
The race involved competitors running and cycling over four legs of the course.
The mountain bike leg was followed by a trek through the forest, another bike leg and several initiatives to finish the gruelling six-hour event.
Four of the New Plymouth teams won their category, the other finishing a creditable second.
