Sponsors & Supporters

These are the people who see us through the hard times and make the magic happen. Without our sponsors and supporters, Reel Wild would still be nothing but a “what if” in our minds (and that’d be a real shame). Please take the time to check out the good folk listed below and make sure you high five them when you see them out there.



We’re thrilled that Salomon have come on board as Reel Wild supporters this year. A brand we’ve loved for their passion and belief in getting outdoors into the mountains and onto the trails. The African Attachment’s series following Salomon athletes has become a mainstay of the trail running community keeping us all inspired to lace up and get out there. Check out the Kiwi site here

Injinji Performance Toesocks logo Black copy

Awesome technical toesocks that wick moisture, eliminating skin on skin contact and thus preventing blisters. Accepted by the US Podiatric Association and worn by many Ultra Marthon runners all over the world don’t leave home without them – especially if leaving home involves heaps of gnarly river crossing out in the Kiwi bush!

running wild_cmyk_editedMal Law’s company doesn’t really need much description for those of us familiar to the Kiwi Trail Running Scene. The man’s a legend…if you want to do anything out there in the back country this team can help you get there…… great to have some good backers keeping an eye on us as we limber up. Read more here and email Mal with questions (probably after he’s finished his current legendary record setting attempt. Go Mal!!!)  http://runningwildnz.com/aboutus/

Events Direct and its director, Glenn McNae, have been working in the background on New Zealand’s premier events and exhibitions for over 25 years. Producing an event is more than putting out chairs, hooking up speakers and running spread sheets although that’s a big part of it. It’s totally about the X Factor and creating that vision… Glenn got us straight away and despite our enthusiastic mania for bean bags and couches he’s sticking with us…

If you’ve been to pretty much any trail running, mountain biking or tri event in New Zealand there’s a good chance Allan and his team have already caught you on camera. The man’s gotta be one of the best and busiest photographers working in NZ sports today. Not afraid to get out there and give it a bash either although I haven’t forgiven one of his team for laughing as she caught me plodding uphill at Tarawera Ultra back in November (there are positions out there that make runners look heroic and then there’s sitting at the top of hills 35km in….). Great dude and lucky he’s got our back – read more here
Catch 33
Ross at Catch 33 is the guru of the social media and web scene and Catch 33 is his relatively young company to tackle all range of issues and dramas thrown up by people like us. Ross leant in straight away when he heard we needed help and quickly became both a calming influence and a savvy mentor. Great to have you shoulder to shoulder with us Ross!
