The youth version of a Marathon Team Relay. Exactly the same in terms of requirements to participate but sponsored by Te Houtaewa Maori Charitable Trust to ensure that this korero will be here for Mokopuna of tomorrow.
This is created by Tamariki for Tamariki, following in the footsteps of our Tupuna and the Wero “Te Houtaewa Challenge”, known for his incredible athletic abilities.
In teams of seven, you will form a relay team where you will all participate in the 42km Marathon course, each completing 6km of the journey towards the finish line of Paripari Domain, Ahipara. At the end of the relay, you will be welcomed into a festival where your whanau and friends are encouraged to come along to help cheer you and your team in.
