Up for the Mt Kaukau Challenge?

Khandallah School is holding the Kid’s Kaukau Challenge on Sunday 24 November and they would love for the Amesbury children to join them. 

The Kid’s Kaukau Challenge is a fun walk/run up and down Mt Kaukau, starting and finishing at Khandallah School. Children that take part get a real feeling of achievement from taking up the challenge and also get to be part of an enjoyable community event.

The event is open to children aged 5-13 and registrations cost $20 for the first child in a family and $15 for each additional child. The registration fee covers a running bib, timing chip and goodie bag for each child.

More information is available on the Kaukau Challenge website here:
