Register your interest to represent your faculty or student association in the 2019 Great Waka Ama Race! The winner of the race will win an all-expenses paid trip to compete in Hawaii at the the Queen Lili’uokalani Memorial race.

The Great Waka Ama race combines paddling and running across Auckland’s iconic surroundings. Teams paddle from Takapuna beach to Rangitoto Island then run to the volcano’s summit before paddling back across the ocean.

The race is suitable for all students keen to take on an epic challenge. Previous experience in running or paddling is helpful but not a requirement as teams will be guided by experienced coaches.
