It’s not just about crossing the finish line; it’s about celebrating our journey, our community and the steps we’ve taken together. Join in, get active and have fun.

Enjoy a scenic route starting at Kaitkati’s iconic War Memorial Hall, making your way past the Dave Hume pool through Kati walkways, a Hume family kiwifruit orchard, past Hume Pack-N-Cool, then back through the streets to where you started.
