East Pier Summer Series Race #4

01 March 2020,08:00 - 01 March 2020,11:00

Well when you think summer you must be thinking Triathlon! And the the East Pier Triathlon and Duathlon series is what it is all about this summer.


There are five events this summer and at each event there are 11 different races with different distance and options that should suit everyone from the absolute beginner to the seasoned athlete.
Our events cater for participants from the age of 7 to 99 and Walkers are welcome and encouraged to enter.


The full Triathlon events are recommended for anyone aged 13 years and over, but we have other events such as an Aquathlon to suit all ages. You can do the event as an individual or if that seems a bit much, get a friend and do it as a team. You could even get two friends and really have a fun and relaxed day out there.



Short, long distances , we invite individuals and teams to participate


The Duathlon consists of a 5km run, 21km bike, 2km run and starts at 8am. For individuals and teams.


The Aquabike event will be over the sprint distance course but without the run.


This year we excited to be offering the options of an Aquathlon event consisting of a short or long course
750m swim and a 5km run
200m swim and a 2km run


AND a 5km run/walk only option through the stunning Ahuriri Estuary pathway.


Both of these events can be done as an individual only.
For the 7 -9 year olds Aquathlon there is a 100m swim followed by a 1km run and the 10-12 year olds have a 200m swim followed by a 2km run.
Entry for this event will be $10 and registrations are online.
Start will be approx. 8.15 am as we don’t want the kids caught up with the triathlon swimmers.
The swim will be shallow enough that swimmers can stand up in the water. Parents/helpers can walk in the water or on the shoreline if they wish.
