New Zealand Gumboot Throwing Championship

This event is on 09/03/2019 2:00 pm until 3:00 pm


NZ Gumboot Throwing Championship sponsored by Skellerup

Watch out for gumboots flying above your head as we find the country’s best gumboot throwers at the Games!

Winners from the South Island champs held earlier in the year battle their northern cuzzies selected at Taihape’s famous Gumboot Day.

Come along to The Square in Palmerston North and watch out for some celebrity ‘chuckers’ trying their own strong-arm tactics. The national record could be booted into touch!

Try it out for yourself at our Have a Go session between 12:15pm – 2pm then the Championships which run until 3pm.
