Food and wine festival
The Finish Line Event Hub at the stunning Elephant Hill Estate & Winery offers New Zealand's best finish line festival; where you can relax, soak up the atmosphere, refuel and enjoy celebrating your achievement with friends and family. You can make a day of it whilst cheering on other finishers, having a well-earned massage, enjoying the entertainment and the best of local Hawke's Bay food and wine. It's the kind of festive atmosphere you won't want to leave!
Once you have crossed the finish line there will be water, PURE nutrition, bananas, medical facilities and a rest area available immediately should you require them.
There will be great music, MCs keeping you up to date with snippets of event info and food vendors galore - pretty much all you need to chill before prize giving.
Photos are taken of all competitors throughout the day on course and at the finish line by our official photographer. Photos will be available online 48hrs after the event to view and purchase. Be sure to smile when you see a photographer and have your race number clearly visible from the front so the photographer can identify you.
