Hӧpt Soda AquaBike Entry Information

Introduced in 2018, the Hӧpt Soda AquaBike is once again going to be at the Mount Festival of Multisport!

The Hӧpt Soda AquaBike consists of a 1.3km swim followed by a 45km bike.

The Mount Festival of Multisport was established in 2015 as a vehicle for Kiwi’s to participate in physical activity no matter their age, ability or sporting interest. For this reason, our desire is to grow the sport of Triathlon, and to provide a pathway of achievability for everyone to participate.

The Hӧpt Soda AquaBike will kick off shortly after the Enduro and Tauranga Half.
