About Active QT
ACTIVE QT was established by Adrian Bailey in 2009. Adrian moved from Wales to Queenstown in 2002 after competing in the Queenstown Marathon and decided that he had found his ideal training playground. A keen athlete from a very young age Adrian represented his native country in numerous events from 5km Cross Country races to Ultra Marathons. After 5 years of waiting to become eligible to represent New Zealand he finally donned the Kiwi singlet and represented New Zealand in November 2008 at the 100km World Championships in Italy.
His enthusiasm for organising Events is driven by his sporting experiences over the years and promote a combination of adventure and wellbeing opportunities to people from all walks of life; encouraging participation in events that are motivating, inspiring, challenging and rewarding – as well as familiarising people with the benefits associated with health and wellbeing, an opportunity to set and achieve personal goals which in turn would inspire others.
ACTIVE QT thrives on seeing first timers, mums & babies, weekend warriors and amateur / professional athletes participating in a variety of events from 5km Runs, Mountain Biking Challenges, Triathlons and Mountain Marathons. The achievements of others continue to inspire the development of new events. Sporting Events for Everyone…
