What is Hard Labour Weekend all about?

Complete all
three events

The Meridian Twizel Hard Labour Weekend had its background back in 1985 when a half marathon was started as a fundraiser for kids sport. It has morphed through a number of different events at different sites to what we have today – three events (mountain bike, kayak and off-road run) over two days. Competitors can enter individual events or for the really keen, complete all three events and become a Hard Labourer.
