Event Information:

The Ironman New Zealand has been held every year since 1985 in February or March, a triathlon sports event over the full Ironman distance (3.86 km swim, 180.2 km cycling, running 42.195 kilometers) in Taupo in New Zealand.

Taupo is a town on the shore of Lake Taupo in the centre of the North Island of New Zealand. It is the seat of the Taupo District Council and lies in the southern Waikato Region. Taupo is located at the outlet of Lake Taupo, New Zealand’s largest lake, in the northeast part of the lake where it discharges to the Waikato River. The river flows over one of New Zealand’s most spectacular waterfalls, Huka Falls, a short distance north of the town. Taupo is a centre of volcanic and geothermal activity and hot springs suitable for bathing are located at several places in the vicinity. The volcanic mountain of Mount Tauhara lies six kilometres (4 mi) to the east. Some forested area exists near Taupo, with understory vegetation consisting of certain shrubs and ferns.

Taupo is a tourist centre, particularly in the summer, as it offers panoramic views over the lake and to the volcanic mountains of Tongariro National Park to the south. It offers a number of tourist activities including sky diving, jet boating and paragliding. Taupo services a number of surrounding plantation pine forests including Kaingaroa Forest, the largest manmade forest in the world, and related industry. A large sawmill is sited approximated 3 km to the north east of the town on Centennial Drive. Since the mid-1990s Taupo has become increasingly popular as a venue for major sporting events, increasingly of an international nature. The town’s compact size, clean environment, central location and supportive council and community have been cited as the reasons for this.

Course Information:

  • 1.2 Mile Swim:

    The one loop swim takes place in the clear waters of Lake Cahuilla. This protected reservoir provides an ideal experience for first time athletes with a sandy beach start. The swim will feature a rolling start.

    56 Mile Bike:

    The bike course takes athletes on rural roads past a number of palm tree farms before returning through the city of La Quinta into Indian Wells. The flat course provides gorgeous views of the Santa Rosa mountains while keeping most of the course below sea level. Athletes transition from the bike to the run adjacent to the iconic Indian Wells Tennis Gardens stadium.

    13.1 Mile Run:

    The two loop run course leaves the Indian Wells Tennis Gardens area while traversing over to the Indian Wells Golf Resort. Much of the course winds around the lush course on the cart path before returning to the Tennis Gardens between each lap and again at the finish. The design of this course allows for fantastic spectator viewing at multiple points along the course.
