welcome to the Kepler Challenge 2016
The 60km mountain run and 27km Luxmore Grunt mountain grind - 29th annual event Saturday 3rd December, 2016
The Kepler Challenge Mountain Run is described as "the jewel in NZ's mountain running calendar", while it's sister event the Luxmore Grunt is justifiably respected. Both events are organized by a voluntary committee with the support, on race day, of approximately 200 Te Anau residents. This gives the event a truly "community" feel.
For a snap shot of the kepler watch this short video created by DOC. Although its aimed at the trampers amongst us, you get a good idea of the awesome scenery you'll run through.
