Waimarino Tough Kid®

Our first Tough Kid event for the year will be held Friday 5 April at the Waimarino Showgrounds in Raetihi. This awesome event is all about tamariki having a go, challenging themselves, and getting muddy – and whānau can try out the course too! All ages complete the same course which is approximately 2km long.
Host school Ohakune Primary School will be selling hot chocolates and juicies so bring your gold coins (cash only).
Any adult wanting to participate in the ‘Whanau fun Run’ must sign a waiver beforehand. This can be done at any time during the day at the Sport Whanganui tent.
