Rangitīkei Tough Kid

The Rangitīkei Tough Kid is a fun obstacle course event for primary-aged tamariki in years three to eight. All age groups run the same 1.6km (approximate) course, complete with obstacles, jumps, water slides, and plenty of mud! Parents and teachers won’t miss out, with a Whānau Fun Run at the end of the day open to all spectators, including any tamariki who want to have another crack at the course.
