Napier Port Harbour to Hills

11th, 12th & 13th December 2020


Welcome to Napier Port Harbour to Hills Multisport Festival Virtual Event

Thanks to our amazing sponsors Napier Port, Tri HB are introducing the first ever Napier Port Harbour to Hills Virtual Event - 11-13 December 2020!

Due to uncertainty around Covid 19 and potential future travel restrictions, the decision has been made to not host a Napier Port Harbour to Hills "Real" event in 2021. We know this may cause disappointment to many, so we have created a fun Virtual event that anyone can partake in. We have lots of different disciplines that would suit anyone aged 7-100 and you set your own challenge.

We all know during Covid that it has been easy to binge watch Netfilix and over nourish ourselves with treats. Some of us are dreading trying to get back in to our summer clothes. This virtual event allows you an opportunity to get out and exercise at your own pace, in your own time. Between now and 11-13 December you start walking, running, biking and/or swimming and work on increasing your speed. Then during the event weekend you aim to get your best time and you can see how everyone else did too!

So join in to challenge yourself or join with friends, workmates, family and kids - anyone from overseas can also join in!
