Adventure - Everyone needs some!
.....and then some more of the same!
Here's a sampling of Chocolate Tours and Adventures from the past few years.
Kayaking, Hiking, Art, Food, Wine and Cheese Tour of Auckland, 2018
It was said it couldn't be done, but we achieved all of the above over 3 glorious days
Tassie Taster Art, Wine, Hike, Kayak and Cheese 2017
3 glorious days in Tasmania incorporating Mona, Salamanca Markets, Coles Bay, a hike to Wine Glass Bay and kayaking with the seals
True Grit 2016
Wandering over 7 km of a beautiful farm near Dural, what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon! This course utilized the natural terrain beautifully with cavernous cuttings, escarpment climbs and arctic water tunnels. Great filthy good fun with three intrepid teenagers. Recommend this one as a first for the uninitiated.
A fantastic team of pumped up teens and Mums were on the starting line on April 2 for our second Spartan
assault. After my previous experience, I can confirm that the mud was thicker (and multicoloured), the obstacles bigger and harder, and that farm even more overgrown with thistles (nothing to do with being 2 years more senior). It was such a blast that of course we have immediately signed up for the next adventure race: True Grit on June 12
We trained like demons, and we made it! The first ever Team Chocolate Fitness conquered the Spartan Sprint in Picton on April 5. The Spartan is reputed to be the most serious of all Adventure Races, (although we laughed the whole way), so now we will try anything, as long as there is MUD! The faces in the photos tell the story....5 days later we are still elated and ready for the next one. So bring it on!
Form a team and let's train hard. The key to these races is upper body strength (and grip strength) - a nice way to balance out the body after all those fun runs and treks. Many of these races also allow kids to join or have a separate kids race so it can be a beautiful and filthy family adventure!
