We all love Te Mata Peak. Whether you're a runner, walker or biker, our treasured park is a place of great significance to so many people.
And when you enter MCL Construction TRIPLE PEAKS, the proceeds from your event entry will go straight back to the land on which we race!
Proceeds from the 2023 event will go towards buying native trees. Back in 2020, we raised a record amount of money, enough to buy 1300 native trees, including mats/stake/guards and the labour costs to get them in the ground!
Let's see if we can beat that this year 2023!
We are aiming to buy at least 1000 native trees (manuka, kowhai, totara, rewarewa, etc) for putting in the ground during the July-August 2023 planting season. Each person entering = 1 tree. And you can buy additional trees when registering!
A bit of background...
Us locals in Hawke's Bay know that the Peak is a pretty special place.
But, if you're from out of town – be prepared to be blown away. You're in for a treat – Te Mata Peak is truly spectacular! The views towards Mt Erin and Mt Kahuranaki are incredible.
Gifted in perpetuity to the community in 1927 and managed by a small group of volunteers and the community, the 99 hectare Park is a recreational, historical and cultural treasure.
Standing 399 metres above the Heretaunga Plains, Te Mata Peak is a spectacular visual marvel and also an integral part of Hawke’s Bay history; Maori and European.
Enjoyed by nearly 1 million people annually, the Park offers visitors stunning and varied scenery, unique topography, geology, flora and fauna and a wide range of recreational activities.
We are delighted that MCL Construction TRIPLE PEAKS 2023 is supporting such a valuable asset in the heart of Hawke's Bay.
