FJet at the Kepler Challenge - 3rd Dec 2017

It was a perfect day in Te Anau for the 30th annual Kepler Challenge! A few clouds in the morning kept it cool for all those racing, spectating and volunteering. The challenge consists of either the Mountain Run, a gruelling 60km race along the entirety of The Kepler Track, or the Luxmore Grunt, a 27km sprint from the Lake Te Anau Control Gates up to Luxmore Hut and back down. The Kepler Track, located in Fiordland National Park, is but one prime example of the unbeatable beauty of New Zealand's South Island. And it's right in our backyard!

 

We were lucky enough to have Isla (the most adorable runner ever) representing the Fiordland Jet family! Isla, our co-owner Jerry's wee niece, ran for Southern Stars Early Learning Centre and we were so proud to have her representing the FJet name. Good on ya Isla!!

 

Sim (one of our top-notch drivers) was on the river all day providing boat support for the absolute legends volunteering at the Motarau Hut drink station. It really does take a village to put on such a large and well-organised event, so a big thank you to all the volunteers that made this year's Kepler Challenge such a success! 

I wonder if any of the FJet staff will compete next year?!?
