lagoon/rest day

What better way to prepare for your weekend marathon than a midweek day out on the stunning Aitutaki lagoon!
This is a great opportunity for you to scope out the island course from the water and really enjoy the island paradise
a few days before the big race. 
The lagoon will also be your oasis of recovery after the race! For many years our people have sat and soaked
in the waters of Aitutaki Lagoon as a way of easing the aches and pains in our muscles and joints
