Pauanui moun­tain was knocked off times 10

Hauraki Herald - - OUT & ABOUT - JILL CLEAVE

Jack the dog, and 20 other par­tic­i­pants of the Ca­bana Bar & Cafe’s 10 Day Moun­tain Chal­lenge, sup­ported by the Pauanui Vil­lage Cen­tre, re­cently con­quered Pauanui.

Or­gan­iser Amanda Ig­gulden said the chal­lenge came about after the suc­cess­ful JK’s Kitchen & Bar’s Weekly Walks se­ries ear­lier this year.

‘‘The events are to en­cour­age phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in town and gen­er­ate some hype for the vil­lage cen­tre,’’ she said.

The Moun­tain Chal­lenge did not ap­peal to as many peo­ple as the walk and run se­ries as they had to com­mit to as­cend­ing Pauanui Moun­tain, 384 me­tres high, ev­ery day for 10 days.

She said 20 reg­is­tered to take part in the chal­lenge.

To show they had com­pleted the climb each day they took a selfie at the top and posted it on Face­book. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all 20 fin­ish­ers. The Pauanui Vil­lage Cen­tre is plan­ning an­other 10-day chal­lenge for Fe­bru­ary to catch some of the hol­i­day-mak­ers.
