About the Mount Festival of Multisport

The iconic Tauranga Half is has been part the the Mount Maunganui summer since 1990, making it one of New Zealand’s longest running and most iconic triathlons. The 2019 event celebrated the 30th anniversary of this much loved event.

In 2015 a selection of events were added to the Tauranga Half to create a festival that appealed to a wider range of people with varied athletic abilities. These events now sit under the umbrella of the Mount Festival of Multisport.

Each event has its own identity and flavour but works together to provide athletes and the community with a broader experience.

The Mount Festival events calendar has been carefully developed over the years with a range of events that include the hallmark Tauranga Half, The Enduro long distance triathlon, the Höpt Soda AquaBike, Mount Run, Athlete’s expo and other iconic community events like the Mt Maunganui Beach Volleyball Open.

SMC Events manages in-house the Tauranga Half, Mount Run, Enduro, Höpt Soda AquaBike, and Athlete’s Expo, whilst the other events are delivered by other companies under the festival umbrella.

All profits made by the Mount Festival of Multisport are donated back into the community. The small profit made in 2018 was donated to Mount Maunganui Surf Life Saving.
