Waitangi Day Team Challenge 2019

If the choice of the 54 sports offered in the 2019 Downer New Zealand Masters Games brings you out in a sweat, why not take up our Waitangi Day Team challenge instead?

Designed to accommodate anyone, of any ability, the 1km course loops around the Games Village. All you need are 4 teammates and a healthy appetite for fun! Fancy dress, hilarity, and unusual batons are par for the course.

But it’s not just for the adults! Waitangi Day is a family day, so it’s only fitting that your adult team entry comes with a youth team entry too.
