You can’t go past Kellogs Nutri-Grain IRONMAN New Zealand as the elite event of New Zealand endurance sport.
The 3.8km fresh water swim, 180km cycle and 42.2km run, being held on the first weekend of March, has been described as one of the most beautiful IRONMAN course in the world with a fantastic team of supporters.
Half the field travels from outside the country every year, IRONMAN New Zealand is truly the world’s most international IRONMAN. This race has stood the test of time since its first IRONMAN New Zealand in 1983.
Firmly established in its hometown of Taupo since 1999, IRONMAN New Zealand showcases the best of New Zealand's outdoors and its breathtaking scenery. Thanks to the natives' pure Kiwi spirit, you will feel like a local the minute you arrive. The Taupo event attracts more than 2,000 volunteers from a population of just 22,000—and you'll encounter the rest along the streets cheering you on.
