Held every February the racecourse starts on the West coast, at Kumara beach and traverses the width of the island, crossing the main divide and finishing on the East Coast. In 2015 for the first time the finish will be at the Pier on New Brighton beach.

The race is one of the worlds longest running multi-sports events and is older even than the Hawaiian Ironman. From similar roots Robin Judkins founded the event in 1983 when just 25 hardy souls took on the 243km challenge over two days.

Over the years that grew to a peak of close to 1000 competitors and the event has grown with different sections to suit all those from the professional athletes to the weekend warriors.
