The Peak to Powderkeg is an annual event that gives a kiwi twist to a normal winter triathlon.
The Peak to Powderkeg race starts with skiing or snowboarding down the 3.2 km snowline before transitioning to run 3.8 km. The course than takes you for a 12.5 km cycle to the bottom of Mountain Road. Here you will park your bike and push your legs to run the final distance to an awaiting beer (or lemonade for those underage) which must be skulled before crossing the finish line. The clock stops ticking once you slam your empty vessel down on the table.
Need some training? The Peak to Powerkeg team have you covered. They've teamed up with Train for Gain to bring you the perfect training program. Now you don't have any excuse not to enter.
