Get your walking boots on — Taihape's yellow gumboots

From the What's New archive - March 2010

Most people keen on walking don their favourite walking shoes or sneakers and take to the streets or their local hiking track. Taihape has abandoned shoes and sneakers in favour of their town icon, gumboots.

Resene Paints

Promoted by Rangitikei Active, yellow gumboots have been painted onto walkways in Taihape to remind people to get out and about and get walking. Keen to create a striking yet safe effect, the gumboots are finished in Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path paint in Resene Kowhai (ochre yelllow). With a comfortable grip texture, Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path provides a non-slip finish even in the wettest weather.

The appearance of yellow gumboots was joined by a 'Walk to work Wednesday' programme and the Rangitikei 88 challenge where residents were encouraged to record all their walks together and add them to a total of 88km - the distance from Bulls to Taihape via Marton and Hunterville.
