The Meridian Twizel Hard Labour Weekend had its background back in 1985 when a half marathon was started as a fundraiser for kids sport. It has morphed through a number of different events at different sites to what we have today – three events (mountain bike, kayak and off road run) over two days. Competitors can enter individual events or for the really keen, complete all three events and become a Hard Labourer.
Pyramid Run half marathon, 10km run, and 5km run for kids. The run takes place in magnificent Mackenzie Country scenery. The well marked course allows competitors of all ages and abilities to enjoy the mountains (without climbing any really big ones!) tussock flats, matagouri fringed trails and clear mountain rivers of the High Country.
