You’ve done every local race you could find. You’ve even hopped on a bus, plane, or train to try something new. But to spark your motivation and try something really new, why not tackle a race in an unexpected location? Take Ironman New Zealand, for example:
It is based around the crystal clear waters of Lake Taupo, the country’s largest lake, which was formed from a volcanic eruption nearly 2000 years ago. The Great Lake lends itself to water-skiing, swimming, sailing, kayaking, boating and fishing.
The nearby Waikato River rushes over the magnificent Huka Falls, the country’s most visited attraction, where 220,000 litres of water thunder over the cliff face every second.
That may be a lofty goal, but shaking up your routine and and tackling new challenges never hurts.
