Race the circuit - without a V8 in sight...
Auckland City Tri Club has hosted the annual Duathlon at Pukekohe race track since 2009! Athletes get the best of both worlds - a fast smooth surface on the bike, a variety of run surfaces...all in a compact location. Many of NZ's brightest stars have had their start at this race!
This year the event doubles as the North Island Sprint Duathlon Championship and North Island Secondary School Duathlon Championship which makes it an even better reason to enter. Tri NZ Championship medals will be awarded to each age group, and your points will go towards the overall points for the 2XU Overall Champion.
We look forward to welcoming you to this iconic event on Sunday 22nd August 2021
