The Corsair Classic is an old school triathlon & duathlon focused on providing a good honest course with options for all ages and abilities. The olympic distance race is a run over a testing course with plenty of hills on the bike and run. 

In 2018 we welcome the Triathlon NZ Standard Distance National Championships to the event, as well as being the Primary Selection event for the NZ Team at the Duathlon 2018 ITU World Championships in Odense, Denmark. However, the event is still very much open to athletes of all abilities – THIS IS NOT AN ELITE RACE JUST FOR SPEEDSTERS! Please do not let the championship status put you off participating. 

The event is perfectly timed for those that are training for Challenge Wanaka, Ironman, other late season races or just to get out there on a tough old course. 

If you are not planning on racing we need the support of the tri community to make this event happen.

  • Olympic distance triathlon / Duathlon
    • SWIM 1500m or RUN 5km
    • BIKE 39km to Orton Bradley Park and back
    • RUN 10km
