COVID Alert Levels Information
Planning for the event is in full swing and we are continuing to refine our plans with the ever changing environment of COVID-19.
With this in mind we would like to highlight the following information for participants so you can understand the different variations to the event depending on the alert level:
Nationwide Alert Level 1
The event will progress as normal
Nationwide Alert Level 2
The event will progress with some changes to the schedule to allow for gathering numbers to be kept at 100. This would mean the 4 person team tag relay would be cancelled to allow for the individual events to still be hosted, but spread out over a longer period of time. Full details will be available in the athlete guide for alert level 2.
A region(s) is at Alert Level 2 and the rest of the country at Alert Level 1
The event will operate under Alert Level 2 guidelines to allow all regions to participate in the event. This would mean the 4 person team tag relay would be cancelled to allow for the individual events to still be hosted, but spread out over a longer period of time. Full details will be available in the athlete guide for alert level 2.
New Plymouth at Alert Level 3 or Nationwide Alert Level 3
Event is cancelled
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.
Although we had big plans for 2021 due to COVID-19 we have had to cancel hosting the World Triathlon Cup however we will be running an amazing national triathlon day!
The 28 March will see the NZ Schools Triathlon Champs and North Island Sprint Champs hosted at Ngamotu Beach. 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!
