The Peak to Powderkeg

Date: 14-10-2017
Time: 4-6 pm

WHEN: Sat 14 October 2017
WHERE: Mountain Road,Mt. Ruapehu to Ohakune
WHAT: Alpine Triathlon
DESCRIPTION:The Peak to Powderkeg is a multi-sport race from the top of Turoa Ski Field to the bottom of the Mountain Road, finishing at the infamous Powderkeg Restaurant & Bar car park.

 

Starting in waves in a Le Mans style fashion, you’ll have a 3.2 km ski or snowboard to the snowline, before transitioning to a 3.8 km run approximately to the 12.5 km road marker and then a 12.5 km cycle to the bottom of the Mountain Road. Here you’ll rack your bikes on the green and test your jelly legs as you run to the end of Thames Street before turning around and sprinting into the Powderhorn car park to skull your beer (or lemonade if you’re under 18). The clock doesn’t stop until the empty vessel hits the timing table!
