The Peak to Peak is New Zealand's longest-running winter multi-sport race, held between The Remarkables and Coronet Peak each year in early September.

Racing as individuals or as part of a team, competitors start at the top of the Remarkables Ski Area and ski or snowboard down the ski field before hopping on a bike and biking down The Remarkables Ski Area access road to Frankton Beach. From there, racers kayak to Queenstown Bay Beach before running through central Queenstown and finally biking from Arthur's Point to Coronet Peak. 

It almost goes without saying, this is an exciting event for contestants and spectators alike!
