Event Accreditation

Triathlon New Zealand provides event accreditation to triathlon, duathlon, aquathlon, aquabike, cross triathlon and other related multisport events to ensure they are delivered in a safe and fair environment. 

There are three levels of accreditation that include a range of benefits ranging from technical support to promotional leverage. Each level of accreditation aims to:

  • give added value to event organisers
  • enhance the quality of events
  • build a strong and connected network of event providers
  • promote and leverage triathlon events nationwide
