The Taniwha is a brand spanking new event brought to you by total sport, specialists in delivering "great events in stunning locations" - and there are not too many places more stunning than this, we can tell you. You're in for a journey... a stunning journey along the newly completed Waikato River Trails, either on foot or on your mountain bike.
There's a bunch of different distance options, so feel free to bite off as much as you think you can chew, then chew like crazy! You can have a crack on your own, or you can rope in your family and/or friends and do it as a team relay - check out the event options below.
Whatever you choose to do, you will be exposed to some absolutely brilliant single track, massive swing bridges, flowing gravel paths, boardwalks, wide open reserves, and even crossing a number of dams along the way! You'll love it!
