Kia ora 

It is with great regret that we’ve cancelled what was to be the 26th Papatowai Challenge on Saturday, 5 March 2022.   This decision follows the emergence of Omicron in New Zealand and the entire country moving to the Covid-19 protection framework red setting. On a positive we can look back on how fortunate we were to stage the 2021 event, missing the lockdown by a matter of hours.  We're already looking ahead to the 2023 Papatowai Challenge being held on Saturday, 25 February.  There will be some exciting changes, including a 5km run/walk event and a tandem section.  We hope to see you in Papatowai on Saturday 25 February in 2023. Regards, Craig Gordon - Sport Clutha.
