About the Event
Let's come together on Matariki to remember our history, celebrate our present and look to the future for the new year to come.
This year, we're aligning our historic King and Queen of the Maunga race with the Matariki celebrations. Gather together, run our mountain Puketāpapa and share soup and yummy baked kai together in the club house afterwards. There is a 5k walk option, a 5k run option and for the first time, a 2.5k run option for tamariki (Under 16s).
