WORLD TRIATHLON CONTINENTAL CUP

International Elite competitors will tackle the challenging waters of the Tasman Sea, before biking the short, sharp hills shadowed by the breath-taking Mt Taranaki, before triumphantly running down the blue carpet to cross the finish line.

We are honoured to welcome the world’s top athletes to participate in this continental event. Hosted by friendly locals who love the sport, we know you’ll feel at home.
