A weekend in Rotorua

Located across four offices throughout New Zealand means our growing team rarely gets the chance to be all together in one place. So to ensure everyone had an opportunity to meet team members from the other offices, RDT Pacific escaped to beautiful Rotorua for a weekend of wellness and a great boost to our team spirit.
The weekend centred on two key events. One was the Paymark XTERRA Rotorua Festival, where RDT Pacific teams competed across walking, running, cycling and triathlon events. The XTERRA Rotorua motto is “live more” – with a focus on inspiring people to get out and be active in New Zealand’s great outdoors. Since 2003, the Festival has grown to become the biggest XTERRA event in the world, which runs eight events set in and around Rotorua’s Blue Lake and Whakarewarewa Forest. It is without question some of New Zealand’s most beautiful and easily accessible scenery, just on the outskirts of the city, and we were excited to get out there – with Rotorua turning on a beautiful day.
A less formal event was the casual competition of three RDT Pacific Ambrose teams on the picturesque, geothermal Arikikapakapa Golf Course. All of whom worked up a good appetite for the shared dinner on Saturday evening.
It was a great weekend and a rare chance for us to get together, let our hair down and get our activewear on!
