Napier Port Harbour to Hills
At Napier Port, we’re big believers in supporting events and initiatives that build stronger, healthier communities in our region.
We are proud to be the primary sponsor of the Napier Port Harbour to Hills, which was launched in 2017. The event is a destination triathlon spanning 118 kilometres, taking in some of Hawke’s Bay’s most picturesque landscapes.
It starts with a sheltered 2km ocean swim with Napier Port as the backdrop. This is followed by a 95km bike ride that includes views over Cape Kidnappers and stunning hinterland scenery around the Tuki Tuki Valley. The event concludes with a 21km run which takes participants past many of Napier’s most well-known attractions.
The Napier Port Harbour to Hills is a relatively new triathlon but it’s already making its mark. The inaugural event received rave reviews across the board, with elite triathlon coach and former Olympian Sam Warriner labelling the bike course one of the best in the world.
Run in partnership with TriHB, the event brought around 150 people and over $75,000 to Hawke’s Bay in its first year alone. This impact is expected to increase, as the Napier Port Habour to Hills grows in popularity. It attracts dedicated participants from right across the country, including a number of Napier Port staff members. We’re right there, cheering them all on.
