Maunga Toa

Is it a race, a scramble or a grunt? Actually, it's all three. Starting from the base area, it's a running race up tussock, rock and shrubs to the summit, with the crowns awarded to the fastest times.

The Maunga Toa is a brand new mountain running event this year, scheduled to run on January 8th 2022. ​This is for all of you runners who love a good blood-pumping elevation gain and relish in the final steps to the finish. ​

Is it a race, a scramble or a grunt? Actually, it's all three.  Although a short distance measuring at 1.45km, it's best described as a hill sprint. 

Starting from the base area in waves, it'll be first to the summit.

In this first year we are planning on running four waves:

  1. Junior (U18) Women and Men
  2. Open Women and Men

Up for the challenge? Registrations will go live in November.

Subject to event organisers and attendees meeting government COVID guidelines. ​
