Action Matakana Reviews & Clients

"It is the best offsite function we have attended.

"At our last two day off-site Action Matakana put together an outstanding activity package for our team.  From my first meeting I was impressed with their professional manner and the proposal that they presented. From the fantastic lunch provided to the boat making race (highly recommended); the day was perfect!"  - Spark Wholesale NZ


"All our staff thoroughly enjoyed themselves & are still buzzing a week later.

"The activities were the perfect mix for our group - not always easy with a range of ages and fitness levels, but you managed it with ease. Our conference was a huge success and that was in no small part due to Action Matakana and the wonderful team you have!"  - Aspec Construction


"Team building doesn't really get better than this.

"Such an amazing start to the 2019 Indoor Netball World Cup Campaign." - Chris Clay, NZ Men's Team


Thank you for the weekend - we all had a Blast, the Stag was a happy man

Thanks to you and your team for making it a great day, will highly recommend to anyone else planning an event like that. - Josh Everitt, Everitt Site Supplies


I just wanted to thank you and Allan for a fantastic day.

The activities where challenging and very enjoyable and allowed for a good mix of learning, teamwork and competitive spirit. TEAM BCD had a fantastic time and would certainly recommend anyone to have a go at your corporate experience. Highlights where seeing our team overcome some milestones on the obstacle course and all have a crack at things they hadn’t done before. - Samuel Simpson, General Manager - Operations, BCD Group


"Wonderful staff, informative and entertaining!

"I have done a number of activities here! Absolutely love the archery, will definitely do more!" - Emma MacDonald


There’s a reason why we keep coming back!

The team at Action Matakana have looked after our Stag groups on several occasions. With some seriously non-nonsense activities the guys know how to look after a group and don’t get slowed down by too much admin or idle chit chat. If you are wanting something that is a bit different, out of the city and will kick any stag do or birthday party off with a bang then the team at Action Matakana are first choice. We’ll be back again (and again). - Tim Boyle


Definitely worth it!

Not for the faint hearted, but it was definitely one of the highlights of my NZ trip." - Leigh Mitchell


"The Matakana XRun is definitely one of the best races in NZ to offer a combination of running and quality obstacles that require strength, skill and agility to complete."

I regularly compete in NZ and overseas in Obstacle Races ranging from Spartan races to worlds Toughest Mudder 24 hour OCR race.  The Matakana XRun is also one of the few Obstacle Races that actually encourage competitive racing and use timing chips to accurately record how you performed and where you placed. It is a great race to get a feel of what True Obstacle racing is like." - Liam Wilkinson, OCR & Trail Runner.


"My partner and I have entered Matakana XRun.

"I am very excited about the obstacles as  I haven’t seen anything quite like this in NZ Obstacle racing before. Other events have put on good shows, however MatakanaXrun has outdone it by using such a variety of obstacles, as well as a short stint to stretch the legs and get some pace. I love pushing boundaries, hence the race events I have previously competed in, and MatakanaXrun can definitely do that for me! On top of all that I am very excited about the team aspect of the Xrun, as most races are very focused on individuals, so this allows teamwork and camaraderie to come before anything else!" - Andrew Robinson
