Twizel Hard Labour Weekend

Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Thu 28/May/09 12:23pm

The Twizel Hard Labour Weekend events are held every Labour Weekend in the beautiful high country and around the canals of the upper Waitaki power scheme near Twizel. In previous years the weekends events included the Pyramid Run, a mountain bike race called the Totara Peaks Gutbuster and at times either a kayak race on the canals and Lake Ruataniwha or a road bike race around the canals.

Two years ago the mountain bike race shifted to the wonderful new 44 km Dusky Trail created by the Department of Conservation and as a result of the demise of the kayak and bike races, this year sees the creation of a new road bike race, the Canal Caper, a 60 km, 2 lap circuit of the canals. The 3 events - the Pyramid Run, the Canal Caper and the Dusky Trail now make up the Twizel Hard Labour Weekend events over the 3 days of the holiday weekend. All 3 events start from the same place at Ben Ohau Station on Glen Lyon Road, 6 km west of Twizel township.
