The Triple Peaks Challenge management team are willing to give permission to youth under the statuary age outlined in its policies and term and conditions. Our team will look at this case by case and consider if the participant has the required maturity and physical ability to take part in the leg or legs of the race that they a registered. When we do give permission for participation for younger participants to take part there is an onus on parents and/or guardians to insure that the competitor is well prepared and supported as they take on the challenge. (see terms and conditions)

An important Note on Pre Race Training:  Yes Train heaps, but not on the private land that makes up big chunks of the course.  Anyone caught training on the private land on the course will be disqualified.  Because if you abuse it we lose it - Kia tupato.

Timing devices must be returned at the Finish Line

To enable us to run this event we have sought permission from a number of local landowners. It is important that we treat the land that we pass through with respect. 

Maps and Course description are subject to change, these are a guide only.
