I have participated in 2 of the Racing the Planet Events as a competitor - the Atacama Crossing in 2015 and in Namibia 2018. My day job is a doctor working in Rural Communities both in Rural Hospital and in General Practice. My husband and I have decided to make Central Otago our home and are so excited that a Racing the Planet Event is being held in our backyard/playground. I am looking forward to welcoming international and local visitors to our piece of paradise for an adventure of a lifetime.
