We are super excited to announce that for the first time ever at the Mount Festival of Multisport 2018, there will be a Long Distance Triathlon Event, The Enduro.

This event will consist of a 3km swim, 120km bike and a 25km run.

As the only race of this distance currently available in New Zealand, this is not to be missed!

Team and individual entries are NOW OPEN.


Don’t worry if you’re already entered in the Port of Tauranga Half and want to upgrade to the new Enduro event – There is no transfer fee to upgrade! (Just pay the difference in race fees)

317 Legend Series

Step up this season, gain bragging rights, become a legend!

The Mount Festival of Multisport are excited to announce the collaboration with IRONMAORI and the launch of the brand new 317 Legend Series!

To become a 317 Legend you must participate in three key events over a total distance of 317 kilometres.

The events included in the legend series are:

  • IRONMAORI Quarter (4 November, 2017), which consists of a 1km swim, 45km cycle, 10km walk/run,
  • The IRONMAORI Half (2 December 2017), which consists of a 2km swim, 90km cycle, 21km walk/run
  • The Enduro (20 January, 2018) which consists of a 3km swim, a 120km cycle and a 25km walk/run.

Each competitor in the series will receive an EPIC branded hoodie and a piece of the Legend Series Medal at each event. Complete all three events, to be given offical LEGEND Status, and the last piece of the medal.

Given that the popularity of the IRONMAORI quarter means all individual places are sold out,  another 200 Individual places to cater have been created for The 317 Legend Series participants.

IRONMAORI and the Mount Festival are thrilled to be collaborating on this new initiative for the
Multisport sector and feel it will bring a whole new dimension to the sport of Triathlon.

If you would like to enter, tick the ‘317 Legend Series’ box on the entry form for each individual event.  This will add on $25 per event entry.

TRI NZ Membership

In February 2016, Triathlon NZ launched a paid memberships option for triathletes in New Zealand.

To coincide with these recent changes, key New Zealand event providers including the Mount Festival of Multisport are aiding to simplify the membership process by supplying Triathlon NZ event-day race licenses with participant registrations.

During your registration for the Long Distance Triathlon you will be prompted to answer whether you have a Triathlon NZ or International Triathlon membership. If you check the no option, the race-day licence fee of $20NZD will automatically be added to your total checkout amount. The $20 fee is the same for individual and team entries. This fee does not go to the event, but is passed directly onto Triathlon NZ.

An annual membership with Triathlon NZ gives you a TRIBE member benefits card, including deals with 2XU, TrainingPeaks, Suzuki, Pure Sports Nutrition and access to low cost international racing insurance.  As well as supporting the sports 5 key Community initiatives: Youth pathways, Technical programmes, Club and coach development, and Age group support.

For more information on the changes implemented by Triathlon NZ, or to become a TRIBE member please visit their website here, or contact them directly here
