Great Family Challenge 2017-12-08T03:17:15+00:00


The Great Family Challenge (GFC) event will be made up of 14 different stations that each team will run between, complete the challenge successfully at each station before moving onto the next station.  The team that makes it home first in each category wins. Teams will consist of 1 adult and 1 child. Note the junior category will have fewer stations to complete.

The event is open to anyone to attend and we will hope it will attract a good attendance from around Hawke’s Bay and in particular the Central Hawke’s Bay area. Pre-registration is encouraged but on the day registrations will be accepted.

Only 80 teams can register this year so get in quick and secure your spot!
