IVAN STEEHUYSE / COMPETITOR / MARCH 7 EVENT

GREAT DAY ON NINETY MILE BEACH PARTICIPATING  IN THE 

28TH ANNUAL TE HOUTAEWA CHALLENGE

TE HOUTAEWA WAS A TUPUNA FROM TE AUPOURI WHO RAN THE LENGTH OF THE BEACH FROM TE KAO TO AHIPARA, WHERE HE TOOK TWO HUGE BASKETS OF KUMARA FROM TE RARAWA.  HIS ENEMIES CHASED HIM, BUT THE HOUTAEWA WAS SUCH A GOOD ATHLETE HE EASILY OUTRAN THEM.

THIS EVENT IS AN ANNUAL ULTRA-MARATHON, MARATHON, HALF MARATHON AND WALK FOR LIFE WITH EXCELLENT LOCAL SUPPORT, AND I RECKON ABOUT 200+ PARTICIPANTS THIS YEAR.

IT TOOK ME JUST OVER 4 HOURS TO WALK MY 30km, SO A GOOD DAY'S EXERCISE - AND A GREAT WAY TO COMMEMORATE OUR TUPUNA HOUTAEWA.

HOPE TO SEE EVEN MORE PEOPLE OUT HERE NEXT YEAR.
