We've managed to re-schedule the 2020 PGT to October 4th. Pre-covid entrants are automatically transferred to the new event. Or if you can't make it we'll transfer you to 2021. However, the event must be at Level 1 to go ahead. Next Govt announcement is Sept 21, so we will update after that... Enter Here.
Due to the Colvid-19 postponement, the mtn run course must be altered to avoid lambing on Pikarere Station. Instead of the Pikarere section the course takes in Spicer Forest and the lower trails of Colonial Knob. It is still 17k and still spectacular! For updated descriptions & maps see course details within your event page.
