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 2020 many things will remain the same, with the delay of the Tokyo Olympics , as well as our 10-year anniversary, the 2021 Festival is set to be our biggest one yet!
The New Plymouth ITU World Cup features the world’s top triathletes, and will be one of the last qualifying event for the Tokyo Olympics. The festival will also feature the NZ Schools Champs and then Tri NZ Suzuki North Island Sprint Triathlon Championships, all competing to qualify for the 2021 World Triathlon Grand Final.
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!
