2018 Entries Now Open!
Exciting Course Change
Still a 101km course that will test you, and now let you go from the Pacific to the Tasman ocean.
After considerable assessment the team at Time 2 Train have decided to alter the course utilising a greater part of the Pou Heranga Twin Coast cycleway.
You will still have five legs to the event, and the distances are almost the same.
The new swim start is the southern bay in Paihia, then onto the coastal walkway, where you will run to Opua for the kayak leg.The mountain bike section has been lengthened to 76 km, at which time you will transition to a 3 km run ending at the stunning settlement of Horeke.
Paihia Bay is the start of the Te Rima Multisport challenge.
We have removed the road bike portion as this creates a safer option, and allows you to stick with one bike. Having the start in Paihia, also removes a lot of supporter logistics and allows for more accommodation options.
Full course details on the Race Information page.
Keep training and our Team will see you at the start line.
