Events in Hawke's Bay

With our Mediterranean lifestyle, you will find Hawke’s Bay has a multitude of events happening, and often on the trails. Check out our Facebook page for updates.

The Big Easy 

The Big Easy event was held on the Hawke’s Bay Trails at Easter, starting in 2013, and the final year being held was 2021. It was the ultimate antidote to all those serious lycra-laden cycle race events.

The Big Easy ride was approximately 45km of very social cycling, where you were encouraged to take all day and enjoy the many tasty Hawke’s Bay distractions along the way on the trails, ending at a fabulous winery concert.

Upcoming events on the Trails

Our premier event on the trails is the Hawke's Bay Marathon. You get to take in the best highlights of the region, with flat easy running through our trails, quiet country roads and pass vineyards and orchards - all finishing at the impressive Elephant Hill Estate & Winery where you can celebrate your efforts in style. Hawke's Bay Marathon - Saturday 18th May 2024
