The 60km mountain run and 27km Luxmore Grunt mountain grind – 29th annual event Saturday 3rd December, 2016.

The Fresh Choice Kepler Challenge Mountain Run is described as “the jewel in NZ’s mountain running calendar”, while it’s sister event the Fresh Choice 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.

This year race entries open on Saturday, 2nd July at 6.30am. This year there is a pre registration process.
