Kepler track conditions

Most of the track is looking good for Saturday's race. A couple of snowy speed-bumps have been installed just to remind you that you are in an alpine area so watch out for those. The weather will be the one to watch (as always) so make sure you have double-checked your gear.

An intensive listening survey for Northern Fiordland brown kiwi (Fiordland tokoeka) on the Kepler track circuit has detected at least 35 individual kiwi living in the area. The November survey, lead by tutor Patrick (Paddy) Stewart and 27 students from Tauranga Polytechnic, set up 15 listening stations around Mt Luxmore tops, and a further 6 listening stations in the Iris Burn Valley.
