New Zealand 18 February: Rotorua - Taupo

Peace Run New Zealand 2020

Rotorua to Taupo

A big thank-you to Holdens Bay Holiday Park of Rotorua for putting up a team of runners in their beautiful grounds. We were treated to nice cabins, as their gift of support for the Peace Run. Thank-you! Here is Melissa, one of the awesome staff members. Holdens Bay is a great place to stay with friends and family!

All Seasons Holiday Park showed that Rotorua is indeed a place with a generous heart. Thank-you for showing your support and giving us a comfy place to stay! Rotorua is an eco-tourist mecca for exploring magnificent redwood forests, world-class geothermal parks and stunning lakes and trails. We loved staying at the All Seasons!

Lila, Chloe and Luka are our gracious hosts at our first school in Taupo, Wairakei School.

The team runs to Huka Falls.
