New Zealand 14 March: National Park - Mangaweka
Heading south to Mangaweka
A couple of genuine Kiwis warmly welcome us to the beautiful Whakapapa Holiday Park.
Whakapapa is an alpine village within the Tongariro National Park, at the base of Mount Ruapehu and sitting 1200 meters above sea level. Good training!
A big thankyou for kindly hosting the Peace Run!
Ohakune Primary School are able to host us at very short notice and invite us back next time with open arms. They fondly recall the last time we came to their school two years ago.
No giant rabbit in sight... so we can continue our run to Mangaweka where we will stay for the night.
We end our day at Mangaweka, with its picturesque river bed carved into the clay of the surrounding hills.
