ULTRA-TEAM RELAY

62KM / 35.8 MILES

4x12 KM & 1x14

THE COURSE

This unique challenge is the opportunity to come together as a team and support one another as you each take on a leg of the ultra-marathon course. This special relay is the moment for everyone and anyone to get their toes wet in the sport of running.

What makes this relay unique is that you each will be following in the footsteps of the Legend Te Houtaewa. The first member of the team will receive a kumara (sweet potato) at the starting line and it will be your team's task to pass the kumara to each member and return the kumara back to Paripari Domain.
