Te Houtaewa 2020

Te Houtaewa 2020

Māori tribes of New Zealand's Far North region each year relive the legend of their famous Māori ancestor named Te Houtaewa.

According to an ancient Māori story, Te Houtaewa, the fastest athlete of his day, out-ran all his enemies as they pursued him the length of New Zealand's renowned Ninety Mile Beach - Te Oneroa a Tohe.

Each March, the great run is marked by the Te Houtaewa Challenge when athletes from around the world compete on the beach in a 60km ultra marathon, a 42km marathon and a series of associated events for runners, and walkers. You are invited to experience part of the legend.
