RONMAN 70.3 New Zealand will be staged alongside the legendary IRONMAN New Zealand event that will take place in Taupō on 2 March 2019.
Taupō is an idyllic host venue for the sport of IRONMAN; it is a renowned and beautiful tourism destination, large enough to host international events yet small enough for the athletes and community to come together as one.

- Triathlon: Swim 1.9km, Bike 90km, Run 21.1km
Ironman 70.3 New Zealand route
1.9km swim in the clean, clear, fresh waters of Lake Taupo. The swim starts in the front of the Taupo Yacht Club with the first leg of 700m parallel to the shore followed by a second leg of 50m then returning 700m to a buoy adjacent to the Yacht Club. The final leg of 450m takes the swimmers down the outlet of the Waikato river alongside the Harbour Master building and exiting up the boat ramp. From the boat ramp athletes have a 400m run along the Boat Harbour to the steps leading to transition.
90km bike course starts to the cheers of spectators before heading into the rolling farmland surrounding Taupo. The course is described as undulating with enough challenging sections to create a fair race.
21.1km run course is a two-lap leading athletes through town two times. Athletes will take in the flat lakefront scenery to Rainbow Drive and return.
