GPR at the Dual.

Shares

On the weekend GPR (Ethan, Carolyn, and Paul) headed over to the Motutapu & Rangitoto Islands for the Dual. Just off the Auckland City Coast we camped out and shared our project with athletes, supporters and anyone else that was interested in our story.

Our goal was to have fun, stoke people with our artwork, inspire people, and share portraits of people taking part in the Dual event. This sporting event is staged on one of the most scenic landscapes in New Zealand – the Hauraki Gulf islands of Motutapu and Rangitoto. The Partners Life DUAL offers trail run and walk, off-road triathlon and mountain bike options by our friends Total Sport.

The Partners Life DUAL is a once a year opportunity. At no other time throughout the year are people be able to participate in an event of this nature, and at no other time are mountain bikes allowed to be taken over to the island and ridden. It’s a pretty special day for sure, and under an hours ferry trip from downtown Auckland.

Here are some images of of the weekend’s fun filled micro adventure! A big thank you to Total Sport who not only make this unique event happen each year, but for also supporting us to make the weekend happen for GPR.

    Love your work! I’ve done it once but looks like it was a great event again this year.

    • Hey thanks Alex! Appreciate the support :) This is my second year over on the island as an observer/ photographer. It was super hot last year and windy (but cooler) this year. What year did you run it? Hope to catch you soon.
