welcome to the FreshChoice Kepler Challenge 2017

The 60km mountain run and 27km Luxmore Grunt mountain grind - 30th annual event Saturday 2nd December, 2017

The FreshChoice Kepler Challenge Mountain Run is described as "the jewel in NZ's mountain running calendar", while it's sister event the FreshChoice 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.
