Good Luck Team!

A group of 'Ultimate Hikers' are running the annual Routeburn Classic tommorow (Saturday, 24th April 2010) in aid of a charity with which we work very closely, the Fiordland Conservation Trust. Each year we guide many people from all over the world along the famous 32km Routeburn Track, providing an experience of a lifetime in New Zealand's World Heritage Area - but this time our team is going to run it!

The team has  been working hard training for the event and they have done a FANTASTIC job at gaining supporters through their fundraise online page.  It's not too late to sponsor them! In doing so you will be helping us ensure that future walkers on our wonderful tracks experience the special flora and birdlife that can thrive in the region, if only given the chance.

We'd like to make a big shout out to our friends at ICEBREAKER CLOTHING for sponsoring the team's uniforms (checkout the icebreaker GT range, perfect for this kind of extreme alpine event).  Now they'll not only be first across the line,  they'll also be the best damn looking!
