The Waikato 100 is a 100km rowing & paddling race from the Waikato Rowing Club to the Elbows Skis Club on Saturday, 2 November 2019. There are also several shorter course and relay options.
It is expected to take crews 6 to 10 hours to navigate the bends and currents of the river with only their crew mates and the taniwha for company for the full 100km event.
The Waikato 100 was founded by the Waikato Rowing Club with the purposes of: promoting the cleanup of the Waikato River; give back to the community via fundraising; to promote the sport of rowing; and to promote supports of the event to make sure it's a win/win/win for all participants.
