Oceania Junior Champs

We’re excited to announce that 2020 will feature the WIL Sport OTU Oceania Junior Championships, held alongside the New Plymouth ITU Triathlon World Cup at Ngāmotu Beach. This is an incredible opportunity for the best junior triathletes to compete on a similar course to the world’s best, and get a taste for the future to come.

The addition of this event means that Taranaki will now host the best Junior Triathletes from across Oceania, the best Elite triathletes from across the world and the best age group triathletes in New Zealand trying to quality for the 2020 ITU World Triathlon Grand Final in Edmonton, Canada.

The Junior Championships event is open to athletes aged 16-19 years, as at 31 December 2020.  

In order to gain a start position, all entries must be approved by your national federation and entered into both the entry system from this website and also from the ITU Entry System.

We can’t think of a better way to kick off the festival than with this high-energy event of undeniable talent! Spectators can enjoy this, and all other events up close and free, or through our live streaming here.
