Tararua S-K: An Interview with Andy Carruthers

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to push your limits in the wild, facing the ultimate physical challenge? The Tararua SK Traverse is waiting for you.

Imagine traversing an 80-kilometer route with the same vertical climb as scaling Mount Everest twice from Base Camp. Half of the trail is off the beaten path, with wild and rugged terrain that will test your mettle.

Join a community of adventure seekers, just like Tim Sutton, who felt the thrill of taking on the SK challenge. Whether you’re a seasoned mountaineer or looking to embark on your first epic adventure, the SK is for you!

Discover the rich history of the SK, where legends like Colin Rolfe, Sir Graeme Dingle, and Gary Goldsworthy carved their names into the history of this incredible journey.

And of course, don’t forget the iconic SK fuel—Mars bars, precooked sausages, and the camaraderie of fellow adventurers. Experience the challenge, the camaraderie, and the beauty of the Tararua Range like never before!

Join us for the SK adventure of a lifetime. Are you ready to answer the call of the Tararua SK Traverse?
