Hell in the Harbour

Hell in the Harbour takes place across a 6km course spanning Hamilton’s beautiful waterfront and features over 17 obstacles, offering a ‘competitive/timed’ category to satisfy those with a competitive edge and who want to see how their time stacks up against the rest and a ‘just for fun’ category for participants who want to take on each obstacle at their own pace. Hell in the Harbour is a family friendly event that is FREE to attend for spectators and supporters! The event also includes a post-race celebration with live entertainment and plenty of great vendors to refuel with.
