Hoof Camp 2013. Get inside the secrets… etc

Training for the Goat is half the fun!.

The Goat Alpine Adventure Run requires a level of fitness and training similar to that of competing in a half marathon with the challenge of altitude and terrain. If you have not competed in an endurance event before it is recommended you seek the advice of a doctor and training specialist, also refer to the training section for a selection of Goat training programs to assist with event preparation. In 2013 we will be running a fun and action packed Goat & Kid Hoof Camp from Whakapapa Village on the weekend of 21 & 22 September. Click the Hoof Camp link below for more information.

Anyone interested in having coaching guidance for the Goat can email and we will be happy to provide some potential candidates.
