What participants have to say…

Thank you so much for a great experience in the Wild Kiwi run 2017. We planned our vacation to New Zealand around this run and were not disappointed! I certainly didn't expect my husband to say, "I want to do that again!" And I never expected to win the 40-49 F division, otherwise I would have stayed for the awards ceremony and danced wildly after to the music of FiveK. In short, we both wanted to say THANK YOU to yourselves and the volunteers. 1000+ steps, beautiful views, well organised and free beer... WE LOVED THIS RACE!!!
