2023 Date released soon

The Ariki Adventures Raro Challenge is a fun 2 person team multisport race comprising:

  • 5.6k Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP)

  • 8.2k Cross Island mountain run

  • 45.7k Mountain bike ride.

The race is competitive but we encourage a race culture of open participation and cross-team support. It is a race for all-comers keen for a multisport challenge!

Race teams must include two members to ensure safety throughout the course. The run in particular is an iconic component of the race but is relatively technical and remote. Having a buddy throughout the race just keeps things safe.

The event itself is sandwiched between two dinners which are included as part of the all-inclusive entry fee.
