Be a NZ Sprint Tri Champion... or a Taranaki Tri-er

Taranaki, New Plymouth and the event organisers look forward to welcoming all athletes to this exciting event.  Racing in the shadow of a snow capped volcano, swimming on the edge of the Tasman sea, and hosted by the friendly locals...we know you will enjoy your time here.

Open to all Athletes - you won't know unless you Tri!

Come and be part of a blue carpet event....  With our soon to be announced partners,  we are all about inspiring talent from across the country - both young and not so young; to achieve the very best they can.  

Racing to the blue carpet in this draft legal event could not only get you a PB, or a podium medal, or a National Championships title, but also a spot on the team for the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Championships in Edmonton, Canada representing New Zealand in Sprint Distance Triathlon (mid August 2020).

If you're Under 16, or just want to have a go, we have the Taranaki Tri-er designed just for you!  200m swim, 8km bike and 1.7km run.

Your support team can test their legs with the Mellowpuff Trust FunRun, or maybe you need another chance to test those legs!

With a range of events on show... there is something for all aspiring athletes.  Race start is on Ngamotu Beach, with the swim in the sheltered port area, the bike and run use the paths and roads in the surrounding location.

Be part of it and enter now!  Race on the same blue carpet on the same day as the Elites - right here in New Plymouth.

Space for Tri Club gazebos or shelters available near VIP tent.  Please ensure weighted appropriately for the wind.

If you are a local food vendor - please contact us to be part of the festival village - it's going to be a big day!
