Raft & Run Challenge
Sign up today to make sure you and your team are locked and loaded, ready for the River Wild 2019! New Zealand’s most exciting team event!
No where else do you get to compete in such a unique and pristine environment. The Tongariro River provides the perfect setting for an epic adventure with the River Wild Raft N Run Race.
You get to challenge 16 km of Grade 3+ rapids on a raft (no experience needed – raft and professional guide supplied). The Tongariro River is regarded as NZ’s best Class 3 Section of white water, dropping over 200 metres in vertical height. The rapids come one after another, producing an exciting ride through towering cliffs and native bush.
After completing your river adventure strip off the wetsuit and tie on your runners, now as a team conquer the stunning 8-km Tongariro river trail which takes place along the banks of the Tongariro River. The trail run begins at the Red Hut Swing Bridge and takes you along the true right side of the river – all the way to Turangi’s town centre. The trail is a beautiful place to run, so whether you run or walk as a team to the finish line, all will enjoy the beauty surrounding you in this special place.
In the River Wild Raft N Run Race You and your team can be as competitive or non-competitive as you like: some come to win, others simply to enjoy an adventure team race together.
Each team in the River Wild Raft N Run Race is professionally guided with your safety our Number 1 priority!
We look forward to seeing you here!
