3.00 - Back to the Club house for hot soup and prize giving.

Entry by koha - (suggested $10?) Koha for Kicks. We are fundraising so that we can subsidize athletics footwear for some of our tamariki who need it. Make a donation here: 12 3029 0307392 02 (Code KOTM) or cash on the day.

Some burning questions to be answered this year

  • How safe is Mariano Piagentini's record from 2023? (16:38) That's flying!
  • Will one of our Owairaka Wahine take back the trophy this year? Last year the race was won by Stella Hammond from Oratia who is now running in the USA on a scholarship. 
  • How many of the Lightning Bolts will take on the maunga this year?
  • Will Keith Burrows run the hill? (He doesn't normally do hills!)
  • Pumpkin soup or Lentil Corba?
  • How many stars in the Matariki cluster?

Please register so we know who's coming.
