Training on course is available year around EXCEPT for the section from Leith Valley up Mt Cargill. This section crosses private farmland. The landowner has generously given us permission to cross their land for the race and for one orientation run.
Here are some training programs specifically designed for the Three Peaks Mountain Race and Walk Events (26km and 11km only). These programmes are courtesy of Body Synergy.
