Hongi on the hill

Together we stand

A statue of Captain James Cook, a prolific explorer who initiated some of the first contact between Europeans and Maori. Gisborne is the first place he arrived in New Zealand.

Running to the start of the Gisborne Quarter Marathon

We came across a Jack-O-Lantern on race day...which was also Halloween

Before the race starts, Uddipan tells everybody about the World Harmony Run

The crowd goes wild

The team is spotted by a reporter from the Gisborne Herald

Nipura warms up - Cook Island style

Fancy dress is a way of life here in Gisborne - even for runners

Uddipan ready to lead the charge

Anybody who can run, walk or crawl is out here today for a bit of fun

Preparing to battle the monster...

Sweet pure lambs

Lying down on the job

Fresh from his big nap, Nelson shows us why he is nicknamed "The Cheetah"

Mahia Beach - a little taste of Heaven

Standing atop a hill, we breathe in the endless beauty of our surroundings...

...and slowly return home

Our immense gratitude to the many kindhearted people of Mahia who took us in for the night (you know who you are!)

– Tom
