A couple of Big Bangers: Carrie and Marty Yaxley

Based in Levin, Race Director of the Big Bang Adventure Race Carrie Yaxley and husband Marty tell Kathryn Ryan about the adventure races they put on for teams of people hungry for a challenge. The signature event, the Big Bang Adventure Race, is celebrating its tenth anniversary in November.

Here Big Bangers line up in teams, finding out virtually on the starting line what lies ahead of them (a mixture of running, mountain biking, crawling, scrambling, skidding, probably lots of mud and laughter) for a period of up to nine hours. It’s a big day which promises to change people forever.
