This is the seventh year of holding the Taranaki Super Challenge.

Challenge Two: Monday 6th February 2017
The Flannagan Cup Open Water Swim (3.6km)
Is an iconic event which has been on the Taranaki calendar since 1916. Set along the beautiful west coast with Mt Taranaki as a backdrop it is a favoured stop for many people on the open water swim circuit.
