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. 

But this weekend isn’t just for New Zealands 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! 


Event operation under the Traffic Light System

As you will be aware New Zealand moved to the COVID Protection Framework (CPF) in December 2021, otherwise known as the traffic light system, and this framework has specific requirements for events.  As the Tri Taranaki Festival is an event of over 100 people, we will be able to operate at all levels of the traffic light system and a summary of how we will operate at each level is as follows:

  • Full schedule and prize giving as per schedule

  • Event will operate with My Vaccine Pass requirements 
  • Vaccine pass to be sighted at registration, for those competing in under 14 and up.  Anyone in the U12 and U13 age group will not be required to show a vaccine pass and as per the CPF guidelines will be treated as if they hold a vaccine pass
