Wednesday 4 April – Walking routes around campus
You can use your steps from anywhere to count towards our team challenge, but we’ve made it super easy for those based in Christchurch with three campus walks that are tried and tested for steps, route and timing. Meet under the clock between Matariki and the Library at 12noon on Wednesday 4 April for maps and directions and to try a route!
