Hawaiki TOA is an endurance event that integrates traditional Māori training philosophies designed to provide people with a unique Māori experience.

Centred around the elements of the gods, Hawaiki TOA incorporates significant themes of navigation, cultivation, and life inside the fortress.

Each course consists of a swim, run, and obstacle course. On each leg of the course you will encounter uniquely Māori challenges. The mission is to find a pounamu (greenstone) located on the shoreline of our waters in the swim event along with your taura (necklace) found in the run, this taonga (treasure) must then be worn around the neck to enter into the last round of Te Pā. (The obstacle course). Only then can each competitor will be honoured by the elements of the gods as a warrior of our time.

This prestigious event will be held at the world-class Vector Wero White Water Park, Manukau Auckland. Hawaiki Toa is a diverse event that welcomes men, women, whanau and corporate groups to challenge themselves at any level in this unique experience.

Age limit: 16+ at all levels (Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced).
