The 42nd 3 Peaks Mountain Race takes place on Sunday 30 March 2025

Entries are now open

Named after the three peaks of Flagstaff (668m), Swampy (739m) and Mt Cargill (676m), the 3 Peaks takes runners and walkers up some of Dunedin’s most beautiful trails through lush native bush where they are rewarded with incredible panoramic views. The 56km 3 Peaks Plus 1 adds one of the high points of the Silverpeaks, Pulpit Rock (760m), and even more amazing terrain and trail. The 55km event is also the NZ short course trail running championship. The 3 Peaks Mountain Race starts and finishes within 4km of the city centre and yet accesses some stunningly wild and remote trails and hills. This is probably one of the most easily accessible mountain trail races in New Zealand.

Tuesdays Training with Chris Sole meet from 5pm at the Caledonian, Logan Park for warmups for 5.30pm start of training on track or the surrounding fields. Check out the training section for updates on the session details for the next Sole Tuesday  >>>> Training
