The Rotorua Half Ironman on Saturday, 16 December 2017 is based at Rotorua's Lake Tikitapu / Blue Lake.
This race is for a special breed. An event for triathletes of widely ranging abilities who all share the same common goal. To get to their finish line. To race on New Zealand's best course. To accept a real challenge and to stare down and defeat their demons. To SUFFER. To support each other. To just get home.
With both half and quarter iron distances, the swim starts in the lake, and is followed by a road cycle and finally a trail run.
2017 sees the introduction of standalone 21km half marathon and 10.5km trail running events.
1km + 45km + 10.5km
2km + 90km + 21km
