Experience a Triathlon in an Island Paradise 2013

From the Cook Islands Triathlon Association we extended a warm welcome to the 19th annual Air New Zealand Rarotonga International Triathlon, which will be held May 11, 2013.

We invite you to experience a triathlon in an island paradise - a swim in warm clear water of one of the South Pacific’s most beautiful lagoons, a cycle around the entire island and a run along palm fringed roads. It is an effectively an olympic distance triathlon (1500m/41k/10k), however has proven to also be popular with long course triathletes as well as first timers.

If you are looking for a different sort of race, this is one that most club level and age group competitors will enjoy. This race is high in enjoyment and with the opportunity to sample Polynesia – its islands and its laid back lifestyle.

The event was covered in the September 2009 issue of the New Zealand Multisport and Triathlete magazine, and was previously reported on in the July 2008 issue.

Not only will you enjoy a week of activities set in one of the worlds most picturesque locations, you can also spoil yourself with a beautiful island holiday with the whole family!
