The most recent edition of this event was on 5 November 2016.
The Scarecrow Scamper Fun Run at Gladstone School in Gladstone (south of Masterton) has a 5km and 10km fun run and walk. It is organised by the Friends of Gladstone School for fundraising and to bring the school community together.
The course has spectacular scenery and views, encompassing paddocks, farm tracks, gravel roads and sealed public roads; it is unsuitable for push chairs. Shoes and clothing may get wet and muddy and some paddocks may have livestock in them.
