Swim Course
Click through to see the swim course map and read the course description.

500m ocean swim. The sea in Kapiti is pretty tame however with the wrong swell the waves get up and the chop comes in. This sea doesn’t get dangerous but does get rough. The course will take you along the shore and a 100m run back to transition.

14K MTB Course
Click through to see the bike course map, description and download the GPX file.
Once you are on the bike you will enjoy a stunning 12km MTB with a mix of gravel trails and single track fun. Wind your way out of the park, under the expressway and into Whareroa Farm. Here you will find a superb trail that climbs through the beautiful regenerating bush before making your way down Red Tape. A fast twisting, turning, technical downhill and back. A few ponds and the Yankee trail brings you back to the beach.
6K Run Course
Click through to see the run course map, description and download the GPX file.
Our 6km run winds its way along the beautiful dunes of Queen Elizabeth park. Its beautiful views will make up for the undulation in this quintessentially coastal New Zealand run and that is why we love it. You will wind your way back through transition before your final 2km so can feel the buzz and the atmosphere to spur you on those last couple of K’s.
