Hawaiki TOA on Saturday, 17 November 2018 at Vector Wero Whitewater Park in Manukau integrates traditional Māori training philosophies into a custom made pā site 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.


Swim, run, and obstacle course:
500m + 1.5km + 1km
1km + 3km + 1km
1.5km + 4.5km + 1km
