A race you will never forget! Simply the best way to get that stunning Te Mata Peak view and a bit puffed all in one! One of the best event atmospheres in all respects!
Amber Morrison, Aesthetic Dental Queen of the Peak 2012
I love talking to first-timers at registration - the excitement they feel is infectious. You can see their sense of pride and achievement at the end of the race when they're cheered up the finish chute. The PTB is a great stepping stone to other events, or just a super fun way to spend a great day in the Bay!
Nicki Young, Super-volunteer & PTB competitor
Fantastic course with stunning views from the Peak. Fast and twisting descent. Great race for both the experienced athlete and those new to trail running. Great, family atmosphere!
Graeme Bee, Rod McDonald Wines King of the Peak 2012
There’s something about the Peak Trail Blazer that makes it truly unique – maybe it’s a combination of accomplishing the Peak itself, being immersed in an awesome community environment and seeing an event run and executed to the standard of some of New Zealand’s best races. Regardless, it’s one I thoroughly enjoy being a part of and can’t wait to see it grow
