NZ Rural Highland Games Heavies Trans-Tasman Competition in association with Line 7 & Copthorne Hotel

We’re delighted to team up with regional associations around the country to hold the third annual New Zealand Rural Highland Games ‘Heavies’ Competition.

A massive (in every way!) highlight of the 2015 and 2016 Games, kilted warriors from Australia and New Zealand compete once again in a number of traditional ‘heavy’ events from the caber toss, stones, farmer’s walk and weight over bar plus a gut-busting Case IH tractor pull.

Made famous at iconic Highland Games in Hororata, Waipu and Paeroa, this is your only chance to see these awesome athletes compete in Palmerston North to decide our new overall champion Braveheart.
