A community run event offering a challenging mountain run along the Kepler Track close to Te Anau in spectacular Fiordland scenery.

This is the 21st anniversary year of the event.

The Kepler Challenge travels the full 60km length of the Kepler Track from the shores of Lake Te Anau along an alpine section in the Kepler Mountains before dropping back down to the shores of Lake Manapouri and following the Waiau river back to the start.

The race begins and ends at an altitude of 200 meters, the highest point on the track is above 1400 metres.

The Luxmore Grunt is it's sister race . . . a 27km run up to Luxmore Hut (1080 metres above sea level) and back.

There is a high level of community involvement and lots of fun to be had along the way.

For supporters there are activities to watch and entertaining commentary at the start/finish line.

Held annually, online entries open at 6.30am on Saturday 5 July via the website www.keplerchallenge.co.nz
