The Kepler Challenge (3rd of 3)

The Kepler Challenge

Runners take part in the 2004 Kepler Challenge. The annual race, which started in 1988, covers around 60 kilometres of the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park. Part of the course passes over an exposed alpine section where runners have to cope with lashing rain and strong wind gusts.
