The finishing touches are being added to the 25th-year banners and signs for tomorrow's Kepler Challenge mountain race.

Ray Willett, of Te Anau, has run in all but one of the events and has volunteered his time painting banners for the race for the past 25 years.

The 60-kilometre event around the Kepler Track was the brainchild of three Fiordland teachers and was first raced in 1988.

This year's Kepler Challenge gets under way from the Lake Te Anau control gates from 6am on race day, with the 26km Luxmore Grunt starting at 8am.
