Be part of the future of Triathlon
Since 2010, athletes of all levels from around the world have gathered on the shores of Ngāmotu beach, ready to race after months of intense training. Adrenalin pumping and minds focused, the anticipation builds as competitors and spectators await the whistle to kick off the Tri Taranaki Festival.
With the Tokyo Olympics on the horizon, as well as our 10-year anniversary, the 2020 Festival is set to be our biggest one yet!
The New Plymouth ITU World Cup features the world’s top triathletes, and is the last qualifying event for the Tokyo Olympics. The festival will also feature Oceania’s best in the WIL Sport Oceania Junior Championships and Mixed Relay events as well as the New Zealand Sprint Championships, all competing to qualify for the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Edmonton.
But this weekend isn’t just for the world’s top athletes. Our Taranaki Tri-er and Fun Run events are for anyone who wants to give the sport a go and raise funds for a local charity!
Want to be part of the action, but not compete? Spectators can enjoy the festival for free, and those who can’t make the event can witness every thrilling second through our live streaming, of the entire event.
On behalf of the region and our valued partners, thanks for making the Tri Taranaki Festival a reality!
