On Saturday 4th December, Matthew and Cameron took part in the Children's Fun Race that was part of the Te Anau Kepler Challenge and Luxmore Grunt event. While the main race was 67km up, down and round the mountains on sections of the famous Kepler track, the fun race was closer to 67m across a bridge, past the judges, under the finishing post and across the finish line. Cameron picked these photos out as his "favourite moment" and told us a little about them.. over and over again.


"We runned the race and we had a lolly and we had a medal and we didnt have a juice and we runned the race and the medal and the lady asked my name and she asked Cameron Joe Wickes' name. I runned on the bridge and then I go'd in the race and I got my medal and my lolly. I saw a little tiny pig running"


Mental preparations for the junior Kepler Challenge

"Ummm Matthew had a medal and I had a lolly. I'm with my lolly and my brother. That's my brother and that's Cameron Joe Wickes."

Two of the many medal winners collect the prize (ice) lolly.

"I had a lolly and a medal and Matthew had a medal and I had a lolly and it was dripping yeh and ummm umm it dripped on the grass. Yeh... I played with Riley Dad yeh. And I had a lolly. And I had a medal and I had a run and a medal."
