Kids can run or walk to save the birds!

Wild Challenge Kids Run t-shirts

Kids can show their support for conservation by tackling the Pukaha loop track as part of the Wild Challenge Kids Run on Sunday September 27.

Lots of kids want to actively help out with conservation efforts and this is a great way for them to get out into our native forest as well. Kids don’t have to run the course - they can choose to walk or run. The Wild Challenge Kids Run is a participation event and by getting out into the forest kids can show that they support the restoration of a forest full of native species.

All participants will receive a t-shirt, goodie bag including some treats from Whittakers chocolates and a family pass so that they can enjoy Pukaha after the event with their family (only valid for 27 September).  All kids will also be eligible for the major spot prize - naming a kiwi chick and participating in its release into the Pukaha forest.

Entry is $25 per child and is open for 8-16 year olds
