AucklandChange of venue!!!

Please Note: Event Promotions have had to change the venue of the Auckland Tough Guy and Gal events, due to neighbouring properties unwilling for the events to go ahead at Woodhill Sands Equestrian Centre, meaning that we cannot be granted a resource consent for this venue.

The new venue is just 9 minutes on from the old venue. We have found another fantastic farm to have the course on and the registration, Start and Finish Line and Prize giving will be based at the Helensville Tennis Club.
