Jason Schlarb Wins Motatapu Solo Adventure Race

Congrats to SmartWool athlete Jason Schlarb who took top honors in the Motatapu adventure race this week. Jason won the 51km solo adventure run in 7:13:28. This challenging trail race takes place near Lake Wanaka on the South Island of New Zealand, home of some of the world’s most beautiful scenery.

Despite the beauty of the course, conditions were challenging: the rainy weather made the river crossings even harder, causing Jason to describe the experience as “rain, river, crazy.” Following the race, Jason and his family are taking a well-deserved break, exploring the New Zealand countryside.

We’re proud to see a SmartWool athlete taking on a new adventure and coming in first. Congratulations Jason!
