What is Virtually on Track?

Virtually on Track encourages people to get outdoors and explore the stunning parks, beaches and reserves in the Bay of Plenty  through running, walking or other recreational sport.  
 

The project focuses on eight amazing sites called “gems”. Virtually on Track utilises technology and social media to create exciting new ways to explore and play in your local gem site.

Whether you are interested in exploring the local trails or getting your adrenalin pumping, our website showcases what’s on offer and how you can get involved in adventure sport and recreation across the region. You can also use Virtually on Track to engage in virtual adventure challenges across the Bay, compete in your own time against other adventurers, or get your workmates together for one of our Corporate Challenges.
