THIR loves to get in behind events,
companies that mean something,
that make a difference.
THIR is behind this iconic race which is apart of the Oceania Skyrunning Series. Check out last years video to get an idea of what is in store this race will challenge the most accomplished trail runners . Athletes from both sides of the Tasman Sea compete head to head in search of points to be crowned the overall Skyrunning Oceania Champion . The overall winners will go on to represent Australia and New Zealand at the 2016 Skyrunning World Championship at the end of the series.
THIR is proud to be a sponsor of the Spirited Women – All Women’s Adventure Race is a social event catering for all levels of fitness and experience, where teams of 4 women take part in an short, medium or long course adventure in the great outdoors. Traveling together a team must navigate around a secrete course by foot (walking/jogging), mountain bike and stand-up paddle board (SUP boards/paddles and life vests will be provided), completing a few surprise mystery activities along the way. And to top of the adventure, around the outside of the event there is a good bit of pampering (you deserve it after all!). It strengthens bonds and relationships, bringing family, friends and work colleagues (its a fantastic corporate health & team building exercise!) together for a weekend of unadulterated fun.
The WUU-2K was created as a combination of trails in Wellington. THIR is proud to have supplied THIRbands and caps for the event since 2016. The WUU2K (pronounced 'Woo-Too-Kay') or 'Wellington Urban Ultra 2K', is a trail-running endurance event around the hills that surround the capital city of New Zealand. Included in the event is a 43km marathon, as well as a 62km Ultra-Marathon. There is also a teams relay event. Oh, and the '2k' stands for the elevation over the 43km race, which is closer to 3k for the 62km.The race is run in Mid-Winter, and for 2018 will see 300 - 400 runners take on the tough course around the Capital. There is a mix of terrain including single-track, mountain-bike trails, rocky roads, and of course - many, many hills. This is a challenging course. The 62km event is now part of qualifying for the UTMB, and all finishers will receive 3 points towards their total. The 62km course is also listed on the ITRA, and finishers receive 3 points towards this also.
