NZ Multisport Championships

24 04 2010

The Multisport NZ Association are launching the NZ Multisport Champs in Feb 2011. (Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of them, you wouldn’t be alone)

With support from the Tasman District Council (thanks Tasman ratepayers) the first three years will be based in Kaiteriteri. The format of Kayak, MTB and Run follows that of the hugely successful Xterra in Rotorua (without the swim). In fact they are calling it the K-Terra.

This initiative is long overdue and it recognises the power of having age group athletes competing for national titles in the same way as they do in Triathlon. If you’ve been to a Tri NZ national champs you will know how hotly contested the age groups are. It gives athletes, sponsors and media a central focus.

Nathan Fa’avae and his company Ten Events are partnering with the Tasman District Council to get this off the ground. If Nathan has anything to do with it, it will be a great event.

“Hey Matt, can I borrow another surf Ski, this one’s broken”

Definitely not the conditions you can expect in Kaiteriteri
