Māori participation in endurance sports is increasing every year. It is not new to our culture, in fact our tupuna were doing these things on a daily, from arriving here by waka, sailing and navigating their way from Hawaiki, hiking/walking to and from all different parts of Aotearoa, crossing rivers and seas, living off the land and so on. Therefore it is our Whakapapa.
Over the last 8 years T2T Sports Inc have developed and assisted in training, participation and support of our whānau, iwi, tauira and participants to enter, and complete various challenges and events. From the world championships, the legendary “Coast to Coast” to “The Nugget Multisport Festival” and “Ironman” to name a few.
