Triathlon New Zealand National Championship and Secondary Qualifying 2019 Age Group Team EOIs

Published Date: 16 March, 2018

As we wind down from the current season Triathlon New Zealand is starting to look towards the next 2018/19 season and are calling for Expressions Of Interest (EOI) for all of our available National Championship and 2019 Age Group Team secondary qualifying events.


The Triathlon New Zealand National Championships are the pinnacle of events on our domestic calendar for all members. These races hold a special place in the heart of many triathletes around the country and are always hotly contested. Both with the National Championships and secondary qualifying 2019 Age Group Team events, the Triathlon season is jam packed with awesome racing from top to bottom of the country.


These events are an opportunity for a Triathlon community to highlight their slice of Aotearoa and create a unique experience while hosting a prestigious National Championship title.


Where possible each year all National Championship events will look to alternate between being hosted in the North Island and South Island. Please note this cannot always be achieved due to limited event applications therefore we encourage all event providers to complete an EOI if wanting to look at hosting a National Championship event.


All National Championship events double as primary qualification races for 2019 Age Group Team until tenders close we will not know if secondary qualifying events will be in place.

Please note that the 2019 ITU Multisport World Championship Festival will be taking place in late April early May 2019, therefore National championship/qualifying events in Duathlon, Cross Triathlon, Aquabike, Aquathlon and Long Distance (NZ Mid Distance) are preferred to take place no later than end of January 2019.


Please ensure prior to registering your interest in hosting any of these events you have read and understand both the Triathlon New Zealand Event Proposal and Event Accreditation System Documents found on our National Championship Page on the website.
