With half the field coming from outside the country every year, IRONMAN New Zealand on Saturday, 2 March 2019 is truly the world's most international IRONMAN.
Firmly established in its hometown of Taupo since 1999, the event showcases the best New Zealand and its breathtaking scenery has to offer. Thanks to the locals' pure Kiwi spirit, you will feel like a local the minute you arrive. The 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.
