The Tri NZ Suzuki Standard Distance Triathlon South Island Championship is brought to you by the Canterbury Triathlon Club.
The standard distance race is back with a good old school, classic race on a tough course. The Tri NZ Nationals Champs were held at this event in 2018 with great success.
The venue is at Corsair Bay, Lyttleton Harbour which is a 20 minute drive from downtown Christchurch. The swim takes place in the sheltered Corsair Bay before the very challenge bike leg to Orton Bradley Park and back. With ~700m elevation spread over 12 climbs athletes will have their bike skills and strength put to the test. Finally the multi lap run is a mix of footpath and trails with some short sharp climbs. Our focus is to provide an awesome course with a grass roots vibe.
This race is focused on providing a good honest course with options for all ages and abilities. With the olympic distance race being run over a testing course with plenty of hills.
A variety of events are on offer: olympic triathlon and duathlon, short course tri and duathlon, aqua bike options for all events along with a kids aquathon.
